That is one hell of a line up.

Glad to see Arthur Ranson is up to it. I know on the Thrillcast they said he had to retire because of health reasons but didn’t say what it was.


#1103

Iso time for Santa. King Diamond resurrects “No Presents for Christmas” as a redux single.


#1104

Wow! All killer, no filler on that line up.


#1105

Not many tickets left, I believe. :scream:


#1106

I’ve on;y been ‘conning’ for six years but for me personally, that’s the best line up I’ve seen. Shame about the ticket price. It was £40 a while ago which is dear in itself but the price is now £60!..I reluctantly paid the higher price today as only a few tickets remain.


#1107

Hachette have a sale on individual Judge Dredd Mega Collection books: https://www.hachettepartworks.com/judge-dredd-the-mega-collection


#1108

That’s pretty outrageous given how they sell the damn thing.


#1109

Never mind that, half price hardcovers Ben!


#1110

Which I and a load of others have already bought!

Now it turns out a £10 hardback isn’t bad but this sale takes the piss out of their subscription model.


#1111

They did sell them individually in certain shops didn’t they? I know The Big Bang got them in from their Facebook updates.


#1112

Charging subscribers a tenner a pop and then flogging them all for a fiver each to non-subscribers a couple of years down the line is a bit of a pisstake, I agree.

Now I feel lucky to have sold my incomplete collection for cover price when I cancelled my subscription a while back.


#1113

Yeah, but not for £5.

I’m not inclined to do another one of these as it’s a big commitment over a long timespan, but them doing this sale only gives more reason for me not to.


#1114

Yep, I saw then on the shelves in FP in Birmingham too, for a tenner each.


#1115

A bunch of newsagents near me get the partworks in every week.


#1116

On the bright side of things, the same thing will hopefully happen with their Transformers patwork in a few years, and then it’s cheap robot comics, baby!


#1117

I think that’s fair, but there are also people like me who bought the issues now and then, but didn’t subscribe. This is an opportunity to pick up one’s that you missed out on for not very much money.


#1118

Smiling Detective trade is long out of print (and preowned copies are damned expensive) so I’ll pick that up. The Cursed Earth Koburn stories are something I’ve fancied reading too. Maybe the Doomsday for Dredd / Mega City One books too but I think those will be collected in the next Complete Case Files.


#1119

Yeah, there is that!


#1120

Just bought these. Too good a price to pass up on!
