You ever get your Vol 4? Amazon still haven't shipped mine.

Turned up on Monday. Forbidden Planet have billed me this week for Volume 5 too, looks like FP charge once they've confirmed stock is being sent to them and then they reship on once it gets to their warehouse. Big thanks for the Dawn of X recommendation, whomever decided to collect the new X quo like that was a genius.

Yeah it's great isn't it? I've seen a lot of people saying they won't try it etc online, so I hope sales are good enough that they continue like this.

Amazon have listed it up to Volume 16 at least which concludes the tie-in to Empyre. I've noted none of the Dawn of X trades listed so far has collected Fantastic Four/X-Men.

COLLECTING: New Mutants (2019) 12, Wolverine (2020) 5, Giant-Size X-Men: Storm (2020) 1, Empyre: X-Men (2020) 4, Excalibur (2019) 12, X-Men (2019) 12

I think that's to do with which internal team at Marvel is deciding on that. FF/X-men comes under the FF division, not the X books division.

That might be it. I just checked on a preview and Hickman isn't listed in the credits like he is every other X book.

Damn MM, thanks a lot for answering the question I directly asked you. Now I'm mad Amazon haven't dispatched Vol 4, and it's all your fault. :x

If they haven't shipped you could cancel and buy from Reed Comics:

Apparently Reed have some in stock ready to ship. I've used them before and vouch for them.

Been trying to find the Alan Moore run of Captain Britain. Anyone know if it exists on any store or high seas?

Is there a page for them or do you have to search each one

Ordered some new copies of Grant Morrison X-Men April 30th off Ebay which still haven't arrived. Just realised the seller is the comic book store which is a 15 minute drive from me and Rich Johnston keeps plugging as his local. I could have put on hazmat gear and picked them up myself. Now Royal Mail has stolen them.

There's a page on Comixology listing free comics but those Marvel ones aren't on there so you've got to individually search them. I'm not sure what the point is if they don't promote them.
