Which is slightly surprising as I had attempted to work the system and skip them all together. I emailed and said "just send me the next two instead please!" as we're now a month behind, and they actually replied and said they wouldn't send 17 & 18. But here they are.
At this point the delay in subs copies is getting a bit silly, but since I am not short of stuff to read I think I'll just wave my arms and say "whatever".
I'm genuinely baffled as to why subscribers are still getting their copies late. I subscribed to the new 2000ad Ultimate Collection and got #1 & 2 in the mail a mere 2 days after #1 hit the stores. The difference in service between the JD & 2000ad stuff vs TF is staggering. It's like they're totally different companies, rather than (I'm guessing) different departments in the same company.
Genuinely don't regret cancelling my TF subscription and getting it held back with my 2000ad and DWM at the newsagent instead.
For those not subscribing, Hachette currently have a code FREEPO5T for free delivery on standard orders (under £25). Just ordered that Machine Man book that came out under the Marvel Mightiest collection.
It disappeared from my WH Smiths around issue 7. Fortunately, I'm reasonably close to Orbital and Forbidden Planet and can buy the non-IDW issues when they appear (I'll be picking up Space Pirates in the next few days).
I notice we're just a week away from the first reprint of Dreamwave's Sunstorm arc, according to the Wikipedia list. I'll be interested to see how accurate the reproduction quality is, given that it's the first time this has been reprinted to my knowledge.
It's also great to see End of the Road (TFUK261-289 and TFUS78-80) on the release list. It's due for release on Jan 10th which, by my estimates, is just 1 day short of 26 years since the story was concluded in TFUK 332.

At least they can check #31,32 for errors for us. I got my replacement #29 today - but it was #27. So just e-mailled them to see if they want it back because they stated they have corrected the error & sent #29 to me. My copy of #27 was ok with no errors.
