    Just ordered all the available back issues (2,3,4) and have been put on the waiting list for #1 in the event that they reprint it (so everyone drop them and lets get #1 reprinted!)

    The subscription starts with issue 5, the current issue, and that's probably why it isn't listed seperately under the back issues.

    How exactly did you get on that waitlist? I also got all the back issues but #1
    How long does it take to receive the individual issues? I ordered two weeks ago, but I figured it would be a few weeks...
    Should be there pretty soon now. They won't come all at once though.

    Can anyone tell me what issue 2 contains generally? Is this the British heritage issue? They've taken down the link on their site that explains the contents of each back issue.

    See this link for scans for no 1 & 2. I ordered the issues 2,5,6 available from their website. I would also be interested in the other issues. (1,3,4). Anybody willing to share the contents of all issues?

    Any recommendations on which back issues I should buy? (Are they all must-buys or are some better than others?)

    Thanks!

    Was Issue 4 the British issue? I waited too long it looks like to place an order.

    Why is it so expensive? $130 for 6 issues shipped to the US? Is each issue huge?

    I don't understand why they ship each magazine from Singapore instead of dispatching them here in the US - would significantly cut down costs and we wouldn't have to pay that much to get them here. Same goes for Revolution.

    I still see the Rubinacci issue here in HK. Anyone wants me to send them a copy, let me know. Say 15 usd shipped?
