The comic shops have to buy all the free comic book day books.

Yep, FCBD print them and the shops purchase set amounts, hence why some shops don't participate.

I know Rebellion are always trying to push their subscription service, but surely they should be wiser to raise their profile in retail outlets, or where are they going to get new readers? You can hardly find a prog in any newsagents anymore.

Simple answer - we already do both, because the two things are not mutually exclusive and around 80% of our readers still buy 2000 AD at a newsagent. We've had several retailer pushes over the last two years with great success but it's worth noting that, with a weekly product, retailers don't want unsold copies on the shelves that go in the bin after seven days and so order what they feel they can sell. If readers want a newsagent to stock it (and it's their choice, we can't force them) it's up to Squaxx to encourage them to do so.

Announcements / Bundle deals launch new 2000 AD app for Apple devices
« on: 01 July, 2015, 03:50:00 PM »
2000 AD has unleashed its brand new stand-alone app for Apple devices – and loaded with new back issue bundle deals!

Previously published through Apple’s Newsstand service, the new app includes all the comics, collections, specials, and freebies previously available – and all DRM-free thanks to the Rebellion ID system that allows you to download your comics on any device!

To celebrate the launch, new bundle deals allow readers to save around a quarter by buying an entire year’s worth of issues in one go.  You can plug gaps in your collection with bundles of 2000 AD and Judge Dredd Megazine from 2010, 2011, and 2012, with further deals in the future – and more years to be added.

Due to the terms and conditions for ios Newsstand apps, the old 2000 AD app will continue to publish just 2000 AD under the new name ‘The Weekly Prog from 2000 AD’, while the Judge Dredd Megazine, 2000 AD specials, and our huge range of classic and new graphic novels will be available in the new app.

Current subscribers can log-in to the new app with their old details and download their purchases free of charge!

Thanks to the app, Earthlets hungry for Thrill-power can buy individual issues or select one of our great value subscription options, then have the latest issue delivered direct to their iPad or iPhone every week! Subscribers can save up to 24% and get a range of back issues totally FREE!

And for those who are new to 2000 AD there are FREE sample issue featuring some of 2000 AD’s top stories, including Judge Dredd, Kingdom, Ichabod Azrael, and many more!

The 2000 AD app is also available on Android devices and, with a single Rebellion ID log-in, any app purchase can be synced with and downloaded from the 2000 AD webshop in DRM-free PDF or CBZ formats.

Prog / Re: Sci-Fi Special 2015
« on: 29 June, 2015, 12:13:42 PM »
Thanks, this worked fine. Bit curious as to why they did this though. I'll be scanning the pages for offending material as I read! :)

Nowt to do with the contents - we're moving to a stand-alone 2000 AD app on iTunes for comics/GNs/specials, while the Newsstand app will just have the weekly Prog in it. This is due to changes in Apple's T&Cs regarding Newsstand apps. We'll announce more details this week, but don't worry - you'll be able to access all your existing purchases through the new app and we'll have more content coming promptly.

Hence the sequel.

why did f***ing Ted do better?

It was a major studio feature and had 10s of millions of dollars thrown at promotion as a result, it was the first feature film by one of the biggest names in US comedy, and starred two major Hollywood actors. It might not be your idea of a good movie but it was a crowd pleaser and it did well as a result. Hence the sequel.

Dredd was a great Film that I expected to have a sequel but no go there and I'm floundering for an explanation on why that is.

The simple fact is that not enough people went to see it and it didn't make any money.

they already did a bumper "Best of 2000ad" hardback a few years back

Aye, and the fact that we still see it lingering on book shop shelves all these years later and there's never been another volume tells you all you need to know about how that licensed book went :/

Announcements / Ex Machina: Ava Evolved, concept art book by Jock
« on: 26 June, 2015, 11:24:45 AM »

The creative process behind the break-out science fiction hit movie of 2015, Ex Machina, is to be opened up in a very special book this August.

Alex Garland’s directorial debut has confirmed his position as the master of indie SF cinema and artist Jock’s concept work behind the film’s robot AI and the heart of the story, Ava, is being printed for the first time in a unique showcase format.

AVA Evolved is a very special limited edition art book, that will feature loose-leafed A3 scale portfolio pieces, collecting Jock’s incredible concept art, detailing the evolution of Ava, from early mood-pieces to detailed key concept art.

This stunning sequence of drawings, paintings and collages by the concept artist behind DREDD (2012) provides real insight into the creative process behind one of the most striking SF films of recent years. The book also includes an introduction by Garland, whose directorial vision has seen Ex Machina become a sleeper hit, as more audiences have discovered the film’s incredible aesthetic, complex characters, and insightful moral questions.

The book is limited to just 500 copies and will be available exclusively from the 2000 AD webshop at http://shop.2000adonline.com/products/ex_machina_ava_evolved

A handful of special editions will also be available at the 2000 AD booth (Booth 2806) at Comic Con San Diego, 9th-12th July, where Jock will be signing on the Thursday of the event.

Jock said: “It’s been an incredible experience for me seeing Ava come to life in the final film, and the response people have had to her. I worked with Alex in the very earliest stages of production, and this portfolio contains all the images from that time, before she was handed over to the amazing VFX team at Double Negative. It was a few intense weeks trying to figure out what this machine was and I’m looking forward to people getting to look behind the scenes and see the process from the first sketch to the final concepts in this beautifully designed package from Rebellion.”

Ben Smith, Rebellion Publishing’s Head of Books and Comic Books, said: “Ex Machina continues to surprise and delight audiences, so it is a privilege and a pleasure to bring Jock’s work on Ava into the light. Ava Evolved really is a unique opportunity to see the process behind the character’s look in a showcase format, as well as learning so much about one of the most in-demand concept artists in movies today.”

I couldn't help but wonder if, on the back of the success of these specials, the droids could be persuaded to give the old hardback annual another try. I can dream.

We'd love that too but as it stands resurrecting the annuals is just not feasable, I'm afraid.

I've not set up a Rebellion ID and don't want to get it wrong and end up with a redundant account. Will it link automatically if I use the same email address.

If you don't have a Rebellion ID but you use the app, these instructions should work:

Open the app
Go to 'My accounts'
Tap on 'Log In with Rebellion ID'
If you don't have a Rebellion ID, tap on 'create account'
Register using whichever email you use on the app to make purchases etc.
Once that account has been created you should be able to log in to the webshop with it and sync purchases between your desktop and mobile device.

How do I go about getting a Rebellion ID that links to the app?

Do you use different log-ins for both?

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.

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.
