• How do subscriptions work?

    The Basics

    2000 AD is published every Wednesday except for over the Christmas period when it takes a three week break. This is made up for with a scrotnig 100-page Christmas special. Subscribers receive 49 issues per year.

    The Megazine is published every month and includes a 64-page graphic novel supplement and art print. Subscribers receive 12 issues per year.

     

    Print

    Subscribers to 2000 AD and/or the Megazine have their issues sent out to them by post the week before they are officially released.

    Subscriptions are available for 2000 AD, the Megazine, or both periodicals (known as a Combi subscription) for the following time periods:

    • Monthly

    Payment date on the same day every month. Auto-renews until cancelled.

    • Annual

    Payment date on the same day every year. Option to turn off auto-renew, and can pay renewal up to 5 months early if desired.

    • Two Year

    Payment date on the same day every year. Option to turn off auto-renew, and can pay renewal up to 5 months early if desired.

     

    Subscriptions also come with added benefits: subscribers receive subscription gifts according to the time period they subscribed for, and a 50% off discount voucher for the 2000 AD, Treasury of British Comics and Roy of the Rovers webshops.

    Shipping is included in the subscription price and calculated at checkout.

    Every subscription has a unique number assigned to it. Always quote this number when contacting about any subscription related problem. 

     

    It is not possible to have more than one print subscription: if you wish to subscribe to both 2000 AD and the Megazine, you must purchase a Combi subscription.

     

    Digital

    Subscribers to 2000 AD and/or the Megazine have their issues automatically added to their 2000 AD account on the day of release.

    Subscriptions are available for 2000 AD and the Megazine for the following time periods:

    • Monthly
    • Quarterly
    • Annual

    All digital subscriptions auto-renew until cancelled. Cancellations can be actioned directly through the Subscription Management page.

    Digital subscribers receive a 50% off discount voucher for the 2000 AD, Treasury of British Comics and Roy of the Rovers webshops; as well as free back issues when they first subscribe.

    Monthly subscribers receive a month's worth of back issues; quarterly subscribers receive two months worth, and annual subscribers receive three months worth.

    Please note that we do not offer a digital combi subscription. If you would like to subscribe to both 2000 AD and the Megazine, you will need to purchase both subscriptions from our webshop or through a third-party provider such as Google Play or Apple.

    FAQs

    How do I purchase a subscription?

    Subscriptions are available to purchase from the 2000 AD webshop. When purchasing you will have opportunity to select a delivery address and recipient.

    How much is shipping?

    Cost of shipping is dependent on the country of delivery, and calculated at checkout. All subscription issues ship direct from our printers in the UK.

    What packaging is used for subscription issues?

    Subscription copies are sent straight from our printers in eco-friendly potato starch bags. These are completely compostable.

    Can I start my subscription from an earlier issue?

    Unfortunately, this is not possible. Your subscription will always start with the upcoming release.

    When will I receive my first issues?

    Print

    Our subscriber address list is sent to our printers two weeks in advance of every issue release; this means that when you start your subscription, your first two issues are sent out by our warehouse partners rather than direct from the printers. Subscribers usually receive their first issue within approximately a week. 

    Digital

    Digital subscribers receive their first issues instantly. You can find your first issues on the app or your Downloads page on the webshop. For more instructions on this, please visit our article 'How to start reading digitally?'.

    Do the Megazine and 2000 AD both have Judge Dredd stories?

    Yes, Judge Dredd stories are featured in both 2000 AD and the Megazine.

    What happens if I have a problem?

    If you have any kind of subscription troubles, our Customer Support team are on hand from Monday to Friday, 9am until 5pm. You can email us at subshelp@2000ad.com. If you are print subscriber, please remember to include your subscription number as this is very useful when finding your account.

     

     

  • What is my subscription number?

    Your subscription number is a unique code assigned to your subscription. It is always useful to provide this if you have any subscription related problems.

     

    Print

    You can find your subscription number by logging in to your 2000 AD account, going to the 'Account' page, and then 'Subscriptions':

    You have now found the 'Subscription Management' page. All your subscription details including your subscription number can be found here:

    Subscription_Number__Highlighted_.png

    Alternatively, your subscription number is also printed on the address slip of your subscription issues as the first line of the address section.

     

    Digital

    Digital subscriptions do not come with a subscription number. If you have any problems with your subscription and need to contact us, your subscription receipts will be the best thing to provide. Examples of these can be found here.

     

  • I want to add 2000 AD/The Megazine to my subscription

    Physical Subscriptions

    Our system does not allow customers to have more than one physical subscription: if you would like to subscribe to both 2000 AD and the Megazine, you can change your subscription to a Combi subscription. The Combi subscription covers both magazines and is less expensive than buying the two subscriptions separately.

    To change your subscription to a Combi subscription, please email us at subshelp@2000ad.com or message us using our contact form, quoting your subscription number. The new subscription will come into effect from your next renewal date unless arranged otherwise.

    Please note before any subscription change can be made, we need to confirm with you the price of your new subscription type and the renewal date.

    If you wish to remove 2000 AD or the Megazine from your subscription, please follow the same steps as above.

     

    Digital

    It is not possible to add 2000 AD or the Megazine to a digital subscription. If you would like to subscribe to both, you will need to buy an additional subscription from our webshop or through a third-party provider such as Google Play or Apple.

    Please note that we do not offer a digital combi subscription. 

  • My issue has arrived damaged

    Apologies if your issue has arrived damaged. We are happy to replace any products that arrive in poor condition.

    Please email us (subshelp@2000ad.com) or send us a message via our contact form with your subscription number and photographs of the damage. We will then organise a replacement to be sent out to you.

  • How do I use my discount voucher?

    Discount vouchers are digitally assigned to your account - there is no code to copy and paste!

    You can view your vouchers by logging into your account and visiting the 'Voucher Codes & Discounts' page via 'My Account'.

    mceclip0.png

     

    You can use your voucher by applying it during the 'Review' step in the check-out process. When you reach 'Review', click 'Apply discount/voucher' and you will see the vouchers you have available. You can then select which one you would like to use.

     

    Please bear in mind that vouchers are limited to one use, and some products are excluded from discount such as: subscriptions, bundles, limited edition items and t-shirts/external merchandise.

  • When will I get my subscriber discount voucher/ gifts?

    The voucher may have already been added to your account. Please log in with the email address used to register the subscription and you will find the voucher here:

    https://shop.2000ad.com/account/promotions

    If not, please let us know.

    The physical subscriber gifts are sent out to you within a week of purchasing your new subscription. You will be notified via email once they dispatch.

  • I want to cancel my subscription

    Physical Subscriptions

    If you would like to cancel your physical subscription, you can do so by emailing us at subshelp@2000ad.com or by using our contact form, quoting your subscription number. We may need to ask you a GDPR question to confirm your identity before a cancellation request can be submitted.

    Please note that all physical subscription cancellations need to be requested 14 days before their renewal date. 

    An annual or two-year print subscription cannot be cancelled in the first 12 months, except in exceptional circumstances. After the first 12 months, if a subscription is cancelled, the subscriber will be refunded any monies owed after their last issue is received.

     

    Digital Subscriptions

    We are unable to cancel digital subscriptions for you. If you bought your subscription through our website, you can cancel it directly, from the subscription management page.

    If you bought your subscription through a third party such as Apple or Google Play, the subscription must be cancelled with them.

     

    Terms and conditions for both physical and digital subscriptions can be found here: https://shop.2000ad.com/terms-and-conditions.
