Any chance of repeating this offer this year (or something similar?) Am looking at starting a digital collection of years I wasn't collecting the paper prog.

Might be nice with the anniversary coming up etc.

Get an entire year’s dose of digital Thrill-power in one go – for half price!

The 2000 AD Prog Collection bundles include all the issues of 2000 AD from a single calendar year – and each week we’ll be giving 50% off one of the collections between 2003 and 2015 on the 2000 AD webshop!

Buy the 2003 Digital Prog Collection now >>

Highlights in the 2003 Prog Collection (featuring Progs 1322-1370, including the 2000 AD Prog 2004 Christmas Special) include the thrilling crossover Judge Dredd vs Aliens: Incubus by John Wagner, Andy Diggle, and Henry Flint; the moment when Mega-City justice finally caught up with Orlok the Assassin in Judge Dredd: The Trial of Orlok by John Wagner and Cam Kennedy; mutant bounty hunter Durham Red finds herself 1,200 years in the future in The Empty Suns by Dan Abnett and Mark Harrison; Simon Spurrier and Carl Critchlow’s eternally grumpy expert torturer and claw-wearer Lobster Random makes his first appearance; and horror comes to the high seas in Ian Edginton and D’Israeli’s breathtaking Leviathan.

Each bundle includes up to 50 issues of 2000 AD, PLUS the annual bumper Christmas Prog – meaning you can download and read an entire year’s worth of classic Thrill-power in one go.

These annual Prog Collections are the ideal way to create your own digital archive of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic and catch up on the greatest comics of the millennium!

All files from the 2000 AD webshop can be downloaded DRM-free in CBZ or PDF formats.

Each annual Prog collection will be released with 50% off on the following dates:

12 February – 2004
19 February – 2005
26 February – 2006
4 March – 2007
11 March – 2008

Colin, your opening Salvo made me laugh out loud. Thanks, much needed good Sir!

I still have the audiobook of 'The Apocalypse War' kicking about somewhere.  It was very good!!

Any guesses which ones will be adapted?

I have fond memories of these BBC adaptations. They were on Radio 1 I believe, around drive time? I bought them later on cassette.
The Day The Law Died and the previously mentioned Apocalypse War.

I might be in the minority but Vector 13 would make a nice collection...
Finn certainly!
Amen to Canon Fodder
(You can tell I joined the prog in the 90s can't you!?)
The thing that's really put me off this run is the sheer number of volumes for individual series. I couldn't care less for Slaine, some of Strontium Dog, same goes for ABC Warriors, Rogue etc. I think it's much more exciting when we get shorter single books or 1-2 volumes of other stuff.

My Ro-Busters book is patchy - I thought it was my eyes on first glance but some parts definitely appear washed out/faint.

They do seem to have some serious printing issues though. I just read through Armitage: City Of The Dead, and the print in my copy shifts from deep blacks on one spread to a much lighter on the next alarmingly often. Not sure whether to ask for another copy. (Anyone else had this with that book?)

At the risk of being unpopular can I ask about:

Finn
Harlem Heroes

And how about a collected Vector 13 volume. No? :p

Just FYI - you can now add your subscription number to the Hachette site without getting an error. I'm all subbed up for first free issues!

And weirdly (despite signing-up about a week ago), I just received a direct debit instruction for my subscription.

Christ, that cover is a work of art. I didn't think it possible but It's even lovelier in the flesh.

Echo the comments about the spine artwork. It doesn't really feel encompassing like the Mega Collection. Needs far more characters and change of colour palette!

Also want Canon Fodder...  😅

How about a collection of Vector 13/with Black Light
Finn
Harlem Heroes (would that make me unpopular?!)
Mazeworld
Bad Company is a must

Classifieds / Judge Dredd: Lawman of the Future for sale

I've unearthed a smattering of issues from this short-lived Dredd spin-off back at my family home. Thought I'd post here just in case anyone wanted them (else they'll go to the landfill!)

I appear to have various issues starting from 1.

Cheers!

Megazine / Re: Suggestions for the floppy
« on: 26 June, 2015, 04:37:50 PM »
I've got a special place in my heart for Finn, as 'Interventions'(?) was just kicking off in the prog when I started my 2000AD journey. Plus it helped that Finn looked badass and the Witch/Sorceress was always in skimpy clothes.

I picked up the first Finn stories in a Classic 2000AD issue, and seem to remember a later series which was something like 'Season of the Witch'?

I'm a fan of Slaine, but feel like it's gone rather off the boil these days so would like to see Finn make a return really...

Annoyingly I can't find the Meg this month anywhere (not even the faithful London Victoria store has any). Will have to be a trip to Forbidden Planet I think

More Finn then you expected, more then you wanted.
Not according to the Mills interview on ECBT2000AD...

There's an episode of The Young Ones in which Rik tries to convince Neil that he was the most popular person in his college class and "everybody thought I was great."  I'm reminded of that every time Pat goes on about how incredibly popular everything he ever wrote was and how those fascist editors were wrong, wrong, wrong.

I'll stake a crusade. Z
I quite like both Crusades. The Dredd one is easily the best of Me & Gwant's longer efforts on the character.

There were two Crusades? I have a soft spot for the first(?) one, around prog 921 I think it was. My first prog! Previously my dad had bought me an American floppy that included Robo Hunter, followed by a Meg (The Tenth Planet/Wilderlands)... I still remember the cover strap 'meet the Inquisitor this prog!

Not central per se, but Victoria station Smiths had them in a metal stand when I visited on Thurs. I managed to grab the last but one copy, must have been popular by looks of things?

Still not seen it in any shops in Central London
