Does anyone know why there isn't a digital/print combination subscription?  That would be the best of both worlds.  Print to read then recycle, with the issues backed up digitally should you wish to reread in the future.

It's mainly because of technical reasons and we're not 100% sure whether the investment of time and resources would currently be worth the return in increased sales.

Can I reassure everyone that there are absolutely no plans whatsoever to move to a digital-only 2000 AD. We're a print comic and, as has already been proven elsewhere, digital sales don't cannibalise our print ones - they often boost them. Go with whatever option you prefer, seriously.

while doing marketing type things that is, they have to reduce them to a product and work out how to shift them - not to say that the individuals concerned can't care, before any... errmmm marketing Droids think I'm having a pop at them, just when they have their professional hat on they don't think that way, I assume.

It's perfectly possible to do and be both things at the same time, y'know :) And no, I know you're not having a pop at me. But ask anyone in comic book marketing and they'll tell you that the profession of selling more comics is not an anathema - at any stage - to a love of and care for those comics - everything I do in this job is an expression of my love for 2000 AD and my desire to see it thrive, prosper, and grow.

To the matter at hand, while we may baulk at the word it's effective at selling more comics and WHSmith's placement of these stands *at the front of their stores* and without charging us tens of thousands of pounds for the privilege is introducing more people to comics AND 2000 AD. There's no bad element in that equation.

It's weird to see them cashing in on the MegaCollection.

It's actually a really smart move - for them and us. The bookazine thing, though, has been going on for some time. Future Publishing started it last year with their magazine specials, did great guns for them so looks like Smith's want it to work its magic for us now.

WHSmith's use of the term may not be to everyone's taste, but it really does work - it's the latest thing in retailing because it sells shiteloads more comics and magazines.

Molch-R originally touted it as HB but has a mind been changed somewhere or is Amazon wrong? :-*

Amazon is incorrect. It will be a hardback edition.

Announcements / Re: UK television premiere of DREDD

Got word from a contact at Channel 4 that the audience for DREDD was one million, which apparently is very respectible for a Saturday night screening that they didn't really advertise (oh, the irony).

Yarp.  Johnny lives with Kreelman until he's twelve, in a 'Salisbury Mansion', then he's with the Mutant Army based near Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain until he's 17.  Then he's in prison (also apparently somewhere in Salisbury) before he leaves Earth altogether for the Doghouse.

I stand corrected :)

Oi, girt big Molcher, thee be mistooken about Johnny Alpha a'comin fer Milton Keynes, thas a thinkin o Durham Red.

Oi reckin Johnny Alpha be a comin from Salisbury an be tarkin likes a proper Moonraker.

You sure? I thought Salisbury was just where Kreelman ended up?

Johnny Vegas and Dirk Maggs are our VERY special guests on the latest Thrill-Cast as they talk about their love of 2000 AD, writing Judge Dredd for radio, any why Johnny's unlikely to appear in any movies soon! Plus: Gordon Rennie on swords and sandals epic series 'Aquila', this week's release from 2000 AD, your feedback, and 'My first Prog'!

Not posted on this thread before (as far as I know), but this is kinda the ideal place to show this. My other half got me a corker of a birthday present - Arthur Ranson's landmark map of Dredd/Anderson's world in 2112 from Shamballa

She also got me this gorgeous page from R*Evolution

The latest 2000 AD Thrill-Cast is now up on iTunes and Soundcloud, with the first part of a special in-depth interview with writer Emma Beeby!

I'm really enjoying this podcast. Molch-R's an engaging and knowledgeable host. His saucy Sid James laugh is awesome - gets me thinking his interviewees are making dirty jokes if I zone out a bit while listening. It was great to hear Simon Davis and Pat Mills this week. A past highlight for me was Carlos Ezquerra with his bluntness and honesty. Great stuff. I hope this becomes a well-established fixture.

Thanks for the kind words - really glad you're enjoying it :)

I'd like to take a little straw poll: if you're signed up to the Thrill-Mail are you receiving it every Wednesday? If not, let me know. Thanks! :)
