2000 AD - Britain's longest running and most celebrated sci-fi comic - announces a step change in the way it is distributed in the USA.
From August, the weekly British title will be featured in Diamond Distribution's PREVIEWS magazine as individual issues, known as 'progs' - with October's Prog 1754 being the first retailers and consumers can order as a single issue.
Presently, copies of 2000 AD are bound in monthly packs of four or five issues that can be ordered from Diamond. This means readers have to shell out up to $25 for a single item. However, this distribution change means that 2000 AD will once again be a weekly comic on both sides of the Atlantic – giving readers the chance to pick up thirty-two pages of action EVERY week for a fraction of the cost of one of the monthly packs.
Overseas readers who prefer their comics digitally can also download copies of 2000 AD via Clickwheel.net, with digital releases only a week behind physical copies, and for just £1.49 ($2.44) – making them great value in the current market.
The announcement follows hot on the heels of 2000 AD's US release of the special hard-cover dust-jacket edition of Sláine: The Horned God (read our review HERE). It shows 2000 AD means business about getting its talented work seen beyond its loyal UK readership. As a US fan, I couldn't be more excited.
