I've been asking for this for some time....
Either that or they bundle up with comixology (but afaik they don't do subs). Excellent knews indeed now where is my iPad.
There's a new 2000AD iPad app out right in time for the latest Programme's Wednesday publication date. The app, which also runs on the iPhone and iPod Touch, is free and comes with a gratis 69-page sampler. Like what you see and you can continue buying Progs on a one-off basis for £1.99 a go, or save a bit by taking out a one …
I'd love this, if it were to offer digital versions of the entire back catalogue [as someone above said, it would allow me to clear out a lot of cupboard space]. Unfortunately however, like Dr. Who I was grumbling about yesterday, 2000AD is long past its prime. The artists of today aren't a patch on the ones from the 80s, the story-lines have been made 'kid-safe' and the whole thing [dare I say] dumbed down.
Mine's the one with the back issues featuring classic stories such as Bad Company, Rogue Trooper, Sláine, Strontium Dog, Nemesis the Warlock, etc. etc.
madra, either you're reading a different comic from me or we have vastly differing tastes. Although I will happily concede that Pat Mills does little more than churn out repetitive tripe these days.
I queried the availability of back issues with Rebellion's PR droid. Although there are no plans to include back issues in the i-thing newstand, five years' worth of digital back issues are available in the online shop at the 2000ad website. I doubt that the entire archive will ever be digitised (except maybe as a fan-project for personal use) but all the classics you cite are part of Rebellion's excellent line of collected volumes.
