    That sounds like an amazing way to piss off your customers.

    However the process of robo-insemination is far too complex for the human mind!

    Well, we're promised free issues and that, and we've not actually paid a penny.

    Think I'll email Black Library, see if they can shine any light.

    And I've emailed BL. Thing is, from the previous posts, I don't think it's a dead project - but then, Hachette's response is a bit, well, muddled and unclear.

    Though being a French company, it could be peep on the other end (I got the same lass) is just following a flawed script. Hard to tell!

    I think it was a test run to see what the interest level was like.

    The interest likely would be higher (and more likely for GW to jump on board) if they weren't limiting it to UK. I suppose I get why it's limited, but that's taking a niche audience and making it even more niche, which isn't good for getting a lot of subs.

    Nothing new for Hachette there, to be fair. They do Marvel, DC, Dredd/Megacity One and now, well, sort of, ish, we think, maybe, perhaps but then perhaps not, 40k.

    All only in the UK, Europe and The Antipodes.

    Could be licensing issues.

    Yeah, but that just doesn't leave much audience. I suppose you could expect GW to catch on a bit more in the UK, but has that really been advertised much of anywhere? Obviously not in GW stores, since they seem to have a policy not to advertise licensed products lest they end up competing with said products for your money. (Total War seems to be an exception, which is kind of weird, since TW is going to attract a lot of people interested in a world that doesn't exist any more.)

    Hmm...was expecting my next issues of the Dredd series last weekend, still no sign.

    Quick search of the news shows a combination of Hatchette having a pretty notable sales decline in Q1 and making deals across the globe to apparently expand their reach. So there might be some corporate issues going on affecting the Dredd stuff and the BL stuff.

    Worrying. I hope they've not overextended and wound up deep in the red.

    Got nothing to base that on, yo. Just a bit of paranoia that my Dredd collection might be forever unfinished at 35 issues of 80.

    Hopefully it's not long-term bad news. Maybe partnerships worldwide would let them bring the 40K stuff to a wider audience, making it a more feasible idea? That'd be nice.

    I've contacted them via email to ask about Dredd.

    That, coupled with the oddities of this project have seriously got me worried.

    I know it's most likely nothing and all perfectly innocent, but welcome to my head!
