Hmm. My pre-order hasn't arrived. Any news on when these are being posted?

Nor mine, but still quite early days. I did pop in W H Smith's a short while ago, but it wasn't there. Not that I can  really justify buying it again (although I might have fallen to temptation. If that other cracking B cover had been there*), but I was curious. I find WHS is a bit hit and miss with the prog from store to store.

*and I'm not one to double dip for just a change of cover, usually.

If it hasn't arrived by Saturday morning/afternoon, then I should start worrying & phone up  for an answer!!!

Just got a shipping notification on my order for this. I'm assuming demand has been pretty high and it's taking longer than expected to get all the orders out of the door.

Mine's on the way....with the regular prog, the special and an SFX. That's taken care of this weekend's reading. :)

My thoroughly rural local shop, which is run by the village committee and only opens 8am-12am, secured a copy of the David Aja Variant without my even having to ask for it. Bearing in mind the only copy of 2000AD it ever gets in is the one reserved for me, and the result is that I sit here openly mocking all of you who have yet to receive it. :P haha*

Another question. Will digital buyers have to choose their cover, or will they get both like they did with Prog 2000?

I hadn't seen this answered yet. Digital has both covers.

When did you get your 'dispatched' email?
I got mine yesterday and hoping that the special is delivered tomorrow along with the Prog.

Got the "dispatched" emails on Weds. Plus two (1 per cover) inviting me to buy them.
