Nope, starscape. I double-checked my Paypal transaction of order which was placed on 20th November.

May I ask who is the email from? Was it Print Media Productions?

Let's hope that this is not a problem. :(

The E-mail I got about Strip magazine two being despatched did indeed come from Print Media Productions. "Despatched" can mean anything from "already posted" to "being posted out in a day or two" so, especially with mail volumes as they are at this time of year, I wouldn't start worrying until at least Wednesday 21st December

More curious than worried. :)

I'm away for Xmas and New Year so hopefully it will be waiting for me when I get home.

No sign of issue #2 for me, my first subs issue. Had anyone else received theirs yet?

I got issue #2 in the post but no issue #1. Also the issue was damaged in transit. Emailed John who's sorting it out for me. They'll get there!

And of course don't forget that it's available for the new iPad you got for Christmas and instantly, at that! BTW anyone know how I'm going to sell issue one at an inflated vintage collector's price from my iPad? :lol:

I have an email reply from John this afternoon which says that they have been posted, but if I could wait til 6th Jan before giving it up as lost due to Xmas post delays.

Prob went the same way as the new years radio times, need to keep a beady eye out for anything interesting next week :D (The only reason I subbed to RT for 12 issues for £1 was to get the xmas and new years issues)

Nothing waiting for me when I got home yesterday. However, I did take the liberty of ordering a copy from FP which had been delivered so at least I can read the second issue.

Had a horrible month so far, so I will have to wait until next month to take out my subs and back-date it. Oh well, at least I can then get two issues together!
I started to say something sensible but my parents took over my brain!

Finally got my subs issue 2 today.

A bit annoyed that I was told via email they were already posted and that they were aware of xmas post delays, yet the stamp on my envelope is second class dated 3rd Jan!

Nothing wrong with the comic, love it, but this misinformation about the subs leaves a sour taste.

I received my copy of #1 yesterday. Now waiting for my replacement copy of #2 which arrived before Christmas but was damaged in the post.

John Freeman has been excellent in sorting things out. Hopefully things will go smoothly from #3 onwards. :xfingers:
