Prog / Re: Sci-Fi Special 2015
« on: 24 June, 2015, 02:32:54 PM »
Due to circumstances beyond our control (thanks a lot, Apple!) the Sci-Fi Special won't be available to purchase on the 2000 AD Newsstand app.


You CAN still get it on the app by logging in to the 2000 AD webshop with your Rebellion ID (the one linked to your app) and purchasing it there, then downloading it onto your app. Fiddly, but it'll do the job.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Announcements / Steve Yeowell signing (27th June) postponed
« on: 22 June, 2015, 04:11:12 PM »
It is with regret that we're having to postpone the signing with Steve Yeowell at Gosh Comics this Saturday due to a delay in the release of the Zenith Phase One Apex Edition.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Is the Zenith slipcase exclusive to the 2000Ad shop?

No, it'll be available from comic book stores through Diamond.

Megazine / Re: Meg 361 and new logo

Looking at this weeks Thrill Mail with the line up, It's looking nice.  El Maldito?  I'm thinking this harks back to Mr Ezquerra's Battle work, perhaps crossed with the original conception of Dredd.  Of course I could be wrong.

If you listen to this week's Thrill-Cast it will all become clear ;)

Thanks; I enjoyed that. There was mention in the thrillcast of a new iOS app in place of the newsstand one, yet I can't seem to find it. Was the thrillcast premature?

No, unfortunately a giant Apple-sized spanner got thrown in the works there :/

In case you've missed it on social media and through your subscriptions/RSS feeds, the latest 2000 AD Thrill-Cast is now available to download/listen to!

Jump on board with the Judge Dredd Megazine as, in the first of a two-part special, we talk to Carlos Ezquerra, Gordon Rennie, Leah Moore, John Reppion, and Tom Foster about their all new Dredd-world strips for Megazine #361 - out on June 17th!

Prog / Re: Prog 1934 - Warp Factor Ten!

Unusual that a Thrill is carrying over to a jump-on Prog.

Prog 1934 isn't a designated 'jumping on' Prog, it just so happens that most of the stories are new. One of those quirks of scheduling.

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.
