    As a weekly Sci-Fi Anthology 2000ad is peerless.

    US Comic buyers are more used to Superheroes rather than Sci-Fi , so that is probably why it doesnt do so well.

    These guys are seriously awesome. The fact that they are coming together to give us one serious Dredd-World epic is just icing on the cake. I'm so glad when I crack open an issue of 2000 AD and all three of them are churning out the best comics I read.

    Yep, The Cold Deck is something very different for Dredd and for 2000ad, which should appeal to any US readers brave enough to give something new a try. The format should feel very familiar to folk raised on the big two, but the scale, complexity and ambition of what Ewing, Williams and Spurrier are doing is unique. Highly recommended.

    I refuse to believe that just because it's science fiction, no one would dare purchase it.

    The big reason probably is the price. I'm not sure how much it retails for over in Britain, but in the states, it's ten dollars (tax not include). That's an ungodly amount to spend on a book that's only 33 pages and continuously printed on a weekly basis

    Exactly. That's the reason I don't follow it. I would love to read Megazine and 2000AD but being weekly they get expensive. I actually downloaded a digital issue but I just can't stand reading comics on a screen.

    2000 AD isn't $10 an issue.

    Its $5.25.
