Oh no, I will still buy the prog of course
Just the entire draw of the sub is to get it early - one day early will not do it for me.
And to get it early I put up with bent progs, progs with torn pages at the bottom etc - it's all a far cry from the nice thick white envelopes the prog used to arrive in, always pristine.
OK maybe it will cost a bit more and no freebie t-shirt or such, but at least there will be 99% certainty of having the prog, digital or print, on the Wednesday and I can look forward to that.
I've moaned to the Royal Mail before and as I said somewhere else, they say it is for the sender to take up any delivery timing issues. I've mentioned it in passing to the new subs droid before when I emailed about missing progs last year, perhaps I will make it more official to see if there is anything that can be chased up at Rebellions end/FP or whoever handles the sub distribution these days.
There is apparently a problem either in the Glasgow main sorting, or the Kilmarnock sub sorting office (from what I gather having fished around myself) before it reaches our local DO.
I took a gift sub out to Viz for my mate who lives a bit closer to Kilmarnock, but only a few miles from me in another town/village (without wanting to exactly divulge my location on a public forum).
Every 5 weekly issue he will get it 2 days before me without fail. And I have checked with Dennis Publishing - all sub issues leave the warehouse at the same time as in the progs case.
It's a shame as I like the convenience of subbing, plus of course Rebellion get more of the pie for themselves (not to mention the convenience of basically triple dipping sometimes so I can let my boys read entire stories with ease).
I just feel a bit sad about it really, I've been subbing for a lot of years.
