Yeah great stuff, though I get the point about the price and the inclusion of reprints. For me, as someone who wasn't reading 2000 AD from 2000-2017, they were really welcome though.

Dredd/Zombo and G-Dog/Shako definitely the best of the new thrills.

I'm only about 3/4 way through at the moment; but am being driven insane by the typos, particularly the repetitive one. Mek-Quake sort it out please.

Still not able to buy this via the iOS app. The price label is continually refreshing and has been all week, despite multiple restarts and refreshes.

Buy it via the web store and it will be then be available via the iOS app (that is how I do it)

I enjoyed this special a lot. I had mixed feelings concerning the reprint material, but it turned out that much of it was either published before my time, or I'd forgotten the stories. Either way, most of the reprint stuff was new to me. I do remember the Dante story, but that was welcome. That last panel hurts my heart to look at. In a good way, of that make sense.

I think the only story I wasn't so keen on was Dredd Vs Zombo. I DID like most of the story and I found their interaction very funny but then that super-zombo character turned up and it just got too silly for me. Or perhaps 'silly in the wrong way' would be more accurate as I do like some very silly stuff.

Up with this kind of thing!

Really enjoyable new strips, in a daft and fun and one off kind of way. Perfect summer special stuff.

Great curated strips.

Interesting text throughout, not just the interview but also the intros.
Lock up your spoons!

Physical sales in shops are actually slightly down, but not by much. But subs and digital are up fourfold.

I'm the sort of person who still goes to HMV to buy CDs so I also like to get physical copies of 2000AD as well. My local newsagent has actually stayed open throughout the lockdown and I've made a point of keeping up going there every week so as to do my bit to support it.
