Yup, same here - outside of the UK - my copy hasn't shipped yet either.

Thanks for the feedback, really glad you enjoyed the book - sadly, sales on the Covers Uncovered book have been very poor and so it's not something we'll be repeating this year, sorry.
Doesn't surprise me really. I enjoyed it, but it is a bit thin on content isn't it? It is basically just a collection of cover prints - where's the "uncovered" bit? There wasn't enough background or sketches showing the development of the art for me. I was expecting way more info from the artists showing or explaining their drawing processes. Only a couple of them really did this in any detail. Sales may not have been helped by the fact that the 2000AD logo was also half covered and quite small.

That really is an excellent article. I had wondered how many collectors had been contacted and how the scans were arranged. Monumental bit of planning to get as much of his work together - makes me pine for my copy!
I just hope the world doesn't end before it gets released, seems ever so slightly unimportant in light of today's news.

The new Sandman Deluxe edition hardbacks have an irremovable "Audible" promotional sticker on the front covers.

The fuck were they thinking?
You can always bin the dust jacket... but yeah mental decision. Like adding review quotes to the cover of Megatropolis or adverts in the back of Dreadnoughts. Looks shit! Blame the bean counters not the designers.

If you can't get enough of this stuff, I notice the latest Essential Judge Dredd: Dredd vs Death contains the short and simple, "House of Death" game, from Diceman 1 magazine. Not many decisions to be made, but it is nicely drawn by Bryan Talbot.

I seem to be talking to myself in this thread but anyway here's some more bad news:
The world wide paper shortage has hit production of this book and it now wont be released until April. Probably. If we're lucky. Bugger.

Something is seriously stuffed up in their shipping department. Every order I've place since last July has gone wrong and they only seem to have one droid to field all of the complaints. He can sometimes take more than a week to get back to you but he has always sorted my problems. Eventually.
In my case it really is 'Brexit to blame', but it must be chaos behind the scenes as even a replacement order to cover an earlier c**k up went wrong. I was assured that they are trying to sort it out but clearly they're not there yet.

Your mum's got a typo in her name! Hope it's not too late to tweak the cover.
You may want to tweak the kerning while your at it... ;)

And now the Telegraph has gone for Johnson’s throat. I think that’s him done, TBH.

Notice how the key points are all in the Twitter thread linked below, rather than expecting you to pay for access to the article behind the Telegraph’s paywall. That’s not a coincidence — they want him gone.

Et tu, Brutus?
If you want to read the telegraph article without paying, just use a 12ft ladder...

Possibly the greatest Christmas EP of all time? Why, Snow by Cocteau Twins of course. Released and deleted almost immediately. Who wouldn't want Frosty the Snowman and Winter Wonderland sung by the wonderful Elizabeth Fraser.

Yeah thanks, I've managed to get one reserved in Berlin which should work out cheaper for me than FP in the UK. I was hoping I could support Rebellion by ordering direct but I guess I missed that chance.

General / Re: THE OFFICIAL 2021 2000 AD COVER OF THE YEAR VOTE
« on: 21 December, 2021, 11:38:57 AM »
1: 2228 - Leonardo Manco by about a thousand miles. The finest cover I've seen in years, the details, the poise, everything about it is perfection.

2: 2252 - Cliff Robinson & Dylan Teague. When does Cliff ever draw a bad cover?
3: 2248 - Cliff Robinson & Dylan Teague. In fact, does this guy ever draw anything that isn't either stunning or brilliantly dynamic?
