Calhab - it's not Rebellion, it is the postal service that are having issues...

Not really up to TMO to recompense you.

I realise it’s not their fault

Yup still nothing here either.   No prog or Meg from last week and, of course, not this week.

Have they said what is going on with the postal service?

Still no prog or Meg. It’s been a long time since it was this late.

I realise it’s not their fault, but it would be nice if they could provide a digital prog for paper subscribers.

This is the fourth time in the last couple of months that my prog has been late - and by late, I'm talking a couple of days past the day it hits the newsagent, rather than just "it didn't arrive the Saturday before". I've twice had to ask the subs team to send new copies as two progs simply didn't arrive at all, one after two weeks of waiting for it. It's the worst the subs service has been since I started subscribing back in the early '00s, and while it's clearly a postal issue I think the subs team are considering ways to manage it - last time a prog went missing, the subs team sent a replacement and offered to unlock the digital prog for me until it arrived. Something like that (if it could be set up simply, and not open to abuse) would be a nice gesture for physical subs who are experiencing regular delays.

That sounds good.  I did email them yesterday but got no reply.  Is there a specific address I can forward it onto the subs team?

There was a specific subs email at one point, but every time I've contacted them recently it's been through the contact form on the website. Response times have varied from same-day to four days later, and I think it's simply a case of how busy they are that week.

There was a Tweet a few days ago about it.

It's not remotely their fault yet their business could suffer for it in the long run. A business they have done extremely well to keep going throughout this crisis, and for which I am both grateful and impressed.

For myself - I just sit and wait patiently. As at yesterday, I was fully up to date having received Meg 426 and Prog 2208 afew days ago. I suspect 2209 will be late, it's ok though. It can't be helped. My full sub is due in January, it absolutely WILL be renewed, as it always has been since around 2005.

"My comic is late, which is diabolical even though I wouldn't have time to read it yet anyway. I demand compensation from the people whose fault it isn't. I will have my vengeance, in this world or the next!"

Ha! :D

I think everyone knows Rebellion isn't at fault here, so this more just spitballing about whether there's anything they could/should do given that the post situation doesn't seem to be getting any better.

Well when the Prog is this good its worth the wait - and if I'm lucky will mean the next one lands soon so we get to the thrilling conclusion of Hookjaw soon!

Dredd  - Neimand is just so good. This is a superb interlude that also serves to really drive things forward as well. Wonderful.

Stickleback - Bang, smash, CRASH - all action monster episode - what fun!

Hookjaw - speaking of all action monster episodes that's exactly what this one is too. Imaginatively and excellently executed, Ranking up the tension before next weeks finale. Fantastic stuff.

Skippy the not to bad any more - was pretty exciting again and I'm looking forward to seeing how they wrap this one up next week.

Fiends - Continues to craft its tale immaculately as Constanta come home - though he doesn't know it and meets a fate he wasn't expecting from a wicked Uncle... though we know that won't turn out as his uncle hopes! Just magnificent.

What a great Prog.

Yeh, not received this prog yet, or last week's. There where none in either of the two branches of Smith's locally, either.....I'm sure they'll arrive eventually. Can't be helped!
