I'm surprised Tharg still regularly devotes so much prog space to a strip that doesn't sell in collected form or in the US

Because it's very popular with a significant section of our readership, who constantly ask when it's due to return, but doesn't translate all that well to trades.

Hasn't the review mag also been canned?

Yes, sadly. Despite making quite a profit.

The price isn't the reason it's been cancelled though, there were thousands every month who were found the cover price reasonable for what they received in return. This isn't an issue of it folding, it's an issue of Future slashing and burning its stable of titles.

It's a major blow to quality comics writing in the UK and, as a contributor since the beginning, I'm devastated to see it close. Sales were consistently healthy, it was doing well on digital, and it was a great package put together by people who love comics. It was a hefty presence on the newsstand (a position maintained only by handing over the vast majority of its cover price to retailers) and was a reminder to many that comics aren't restricted to the reprint and kids titles on the bottom shelves. The editors - Jes Bickham, Matt Bielby, and Dave Golder - did no wrong as far as I'm concerned, Dave even made the weekly 'Comic Review' on the iPad app a success on zero budget and support. It's just another casualty of the gutting currently taking place at Future and we are all poorer for it.

Those of you who missed out on a hardback edition should watch the 2000 AD Twitter & Facebook on Sunday evening...

David, I hate to say this but ... I hadn't even started reading 2000 AD by that point. I was 12.

I used to - in fact I think I won it once for a redux of Judge Death.

Not what you're looking for, but a more recent version...

Ha! I remember that - 'Roy of the Rangers', wasn't it? Nearly drove me potty.

My first ever fanzine work was actually for Arthur Wyatt's 'Futurequake', a story called 'Extreme' which was written by Gary Wilkinson - both of whom have gone on to work for Tharg the Mighty.

With the trades being reissued this year can we expect to see they showing up in the iPad add as well?
I'm starting at the beginning and wondering about future purchases.
Cheers

Unfortunately we lost our ebook/digital person a month ago and the new person isn't starting for another month, so the schedule for trades on the app is a bit behind. We'll be concentrating on getting the new GNs (i.e. not reprints) on there so it may be a bit of a wait, sorry.

Announcements / Re: Incoming: SUMMER MADNESS graphic novel flash sale
« on: 04 July, 2014, 05:56:26 PM »
Has anyone's sale goodies actually arrived yet? I expected some delay given the likely sale rush, but it's been ages now.

The sale only ended on Tuesday and items have already started arriving - but there were hundreds and hundreds of orders so it may take time to process them all.
