2000 AD only goes back to 1977, and there were no annuals beyond the early 1990s. By contrast, The Beano has an annual for everyone up to people in their early 80s. As for the personalised stuff, I’m as a parent a bit hmmm about that. Mini-IP will get her annuals this year—she loves them; but I’m not paying 25 quid to put her name in one.

...and would happily buy a Regened one. I know there's the collected edition, too.

Indigo, they own the IPC archive. They've got annuals going back to 1890.

Right, but I thought you meant 2000 AD. If you’re talking IPC properties, that could provide more scope. But even then, the Beano has consistency. You’re selling Beano annuals. With the archive, you’d be selling X up until Y year and then A until B year. It would be messy.
