Specials 2021?
« on: 06 January, 2021, 11:19:50 PM »
Not sure if right place, but are there no plans for specials this year to complement the deluge we had in 2019 and 2020?

My younglings and I have really enjoyed the specials on offer in recent years and I always coughed up for the pack in advance but i don't see any mention of anything like this for this coming year.

Sure the previous years were announced pre Xmas before so was just wondering?

The only announced I know as so far is the release schedule for the regen prog. I also see them as "specials". Here is the article: https://2000ad.com/news/all-ages-2000-ad-regened-to-return-in-2021/


Hopefully we will get some good news soon, especially looking forward to a new Battle special and hopefully something like a Starlord (or a pure Sci-Fi related) special as well.

Fingers crossed we get another fantastic set of specials this year. The comics have been fantastic but with all that's going on I find it hard to believe we'll get the same quantity and I imagine patience will be needed for folks to get their ducks in a row as well.

The other factor I suppose is how well all these have done. Its a lot of content and we don't have any insight into the success. So all that means we can just wait patiently and hope we get some of this stuff.

The specials package they put out last year was an excellent offer, and it meant that every so often I received a comic I'd completely forgotten about ordering, which was very welcome. I hope they repeat it.

I wish I'd done this as I figured I'd cherry pick but ended up buying them all and thus spending a lot more than I needed to!

Aha.

https://2000ad.com/news/rebellion-announces-comic-book-specials-for-2021/

“Despite the many obstacles put in our way last year, Rebellion’s 2020 roster of specials were a great success. While the world strives to resolve the terrible crisis that we still find ourselves in, we’ve scaled back the number of specials this year – but we’re keeping the quality high thanks to our roster of brilliant creators.”

Understandable, but glad we are getting something.  Look forward to the Monster Fun one!

DaNi's art has evolved wonderfully over the past few years, I really like the looser Frank Miller-ish style.

Will pick up the Black Beth special for that alone.
