If someone can point me to a place on the internet where I can order the Slaine Horned God from France, it will make my day!
Also if someone is willing to take a copy for me at a newsstand to send it abroad don't hesitate to PM me!
Thanks in advance.

I now have reason to believe we won't be officially receiving any books. Signing up for a subscription seems, in this case, to be more a registration of interest rather than an actual contract of payment/receipt of goods. That's not to say Hachette won't throw us a bone and send each of us a book or two from the test as thanks, but I don't think we're going to be receiving our subscriptions.

No

ISRC the cover design hasn't been finalized with the test volumes...

No reason to think that JaHawk. This is exactly the same process the Dredd release went through. They released 4 books and it went very quiet. These collections always start in January so it was only ever going to be Jan 2018 anyway. Keep the faith.

Some possibly inaccurate maths also suggests the current one ends on Jan 31, 2018, and so kicking off the new one in January would make sense. (A little bit of overlap to snare readers, but not so much that they feel it's too much expense to get both.)

Got hold of issue 4, Strontium Dog: The Kreeler Conspiracy today, which includes a note stating this is the end of the test run and a free gift or refund is available if proof of purchase is sent. The cardboard backing states that issue 5 will be Dark Justice, so fingers crossed this will become a full thing.

Is that a B&W story? Did they put in some colour stories as well?

Kreeler Conspiracy is the first 'reboot' S/D tale and is in full colour.
