August/September Arrives in my Mailbox
My local comic store said he'll have them Aug 31.

I stopped at a Barnes & Noble today but it had just the Brady Bunch one so we don't have the latest issue on this coast either.

I stopped at another B&N today and it had the new issue. I got the CZX Middle Earth P1 and the Three Stooges P1.

Glad to see the inclusion of more pre-2015 autographs in price guide. It feels like a tiny preview of what’s in store for the upcoming Almanac.

I opened up a bunch of the new issues and pulled Middle Earth P2 from each. I just picked up a P1 on ebay. Need a P3. Can anyone help ? There were a few on ebay in mid-August but I don't see anymore...

I don't know what is happening to my subscription. Last issue went to Australia - still nothing with this issue Shake Head

I bought the Aug/Sept issue in a local shop last weekend. It had the Three Stooges promo card and P1 for CZX Middle-Earth.

That is weird that it has happened to you twice in a row and it doesn't appear to be happening to anyone else in the UK nor elsewhere. John Levitt used to receive his subscription copy about a week after the first person reported getting his/hers but it's more like 2 weeks this year (and he got the latest one about that quickly), so your problem seems separate from a COVID-related shipping delay especially since the previous one circled the globe before reaching you. Maybe someone at NSU should try mailing you a copy in a sturdy envelope through normal international mail to see if the same thing happens.

That's what I'm waiting for, I was assured the Australia problem was corrected and that it had been sent. I don't know what's happening. This has been since I renewed my subscription.

Did they tell you what the issue was specifically or did they just say it was resolved? You could understand an isolated misprint of your address or a misread of it on the post office's part but how does something that weird happen again and just with you?

It is not something that is unique to one person as in the past I too have had my subscription copy arrive via Australia. It must be something to do with how the copies are distributed as the labels look as if they are printed here in the UK and if not in the Uk printed on behalf of a British Company called "The Mail Group" whose post code is in the Twickenham area.

regards

John

Nothing specific. I assumed it had been corrected for this issue, however I have yet to receive the current Oct/Nov issue
