Bank Holidays do knock things out in that given week but I'd suggest normally that should be straight by now (having no idea about what's going on in the back ground).

Number of folks posting in the review threads suggest there isn't a wide spread problem? Are you just missing this weeks or is it also previous ones still outstanding?

I am missing the most recent prog, but it always comes sooner or later

2230 was a few days late.
2231 is MIA at the moment.

I'm guessing it's not the case from the healthy looking review threads, but worth me checking: anyone else having issues with postal Progs this year? I know Covid is hitting a lot of services hard and our post here is really messed up, but it is filtering through Porgs aside.

My copy of 2262 never arrived (although the Subs team kindly sent me a replacement which did) and neither has my copy of 2263. 2264 hasn't rocked up either yet - that was only due this weekend but I'm getting a sinking feeling about it.
This is following the disappearance of 2250 too... normally the subscription delivery runs like clockwork but two in a row and three in thirteen has me wondering if there's a problem somewhere.

..

Mine’s been mostly fine, but some other stuff has been random. One of mini-IP’s Phoenix issues rocked up eight or nine days late. I suspect the entire postal service is still having problems.

Yeah generally my 2000ad's land - though occasionally late (by which I mean Wedneday or after) and one did go missing late year.

The bigger surprise was missing a Phoenix - which even at the height of Covid turned up like clockwork. Got a replacement no problem but things still seem a little sticky at the Post Office.

Phoenix has been wobbly here, but still the most reliable of the comics. I was deeply impressed when an issue didn’t show up, though. I pinged them via DM on Twitter and a copy arrived the next day by guaranteed 24-hour shipping.

We have had one post delivery of anything since before Xmas. Lost track of how many progs I'm behind now.

New year prog still missing in Perth. It was poor last autumn then sorted itself out later in the year.

Thanks for the responses dudes. Sounds like it's probably Covid messing with post rather than anything sinister - weird that I'm getting some post and not others, but I suspect bulkier items are being prioritised.

All those who like me are still missing issues, hope they get resolved soon..!

I got 2262 on time, and 2264 arrived today, but I don't have 2263.
