    I've read a leak, and can give the lowdown if anyone wants it.

    Saucy. I'm currently waiting for my gift-card to process so that I can purchase it myself. I'm really looking forward to it.
    Was the transmission said to be Page 2 actually the final scene?

    It's legitimately available to be purchased. There's no reasonable reason to not discuss it if spoiler tags are used.

    Much as I am desperate to know, and pissed at the delay, I am going to hold off. I need to experience my read with no other opinions or prior knowledge.

    It wasn't delayed everywhere. iTunes releasing at its announced date inside some countries inst a "leak", it's just them not being delayed. Either way withholding spoilers that you read isn't actually putting you on some moral high ground, it's just being stupid.

    Roberts just wrote a thing on twitter. it *was* delayed. Obviously if it was legitimately purchased in your countries digital store, cool, but here's his take:

    Follow

    James Roberts
    ‏@jroberts332
    Q: When is MTMTE #50 released?
    A: Weds 9th March. It was pushed back two weeks.

    James Roberts ‏@jroberts332 8h8 hours ago
    Q: Why was it pushed back?
    A: A chain of incredible (in both senses) bad luck and events outside IDW's control.

    James Roberts ‏@jroberts332 8h8 hours ago
    Q: Which pages from #50 have been released officially?
    A: iTunes had Pages 4-6, which was... unexpected. No other formal previews yet.

    James Roberts ‏@jroberts332 8h8 hours ago
    Q: How come I've seen other random pages online?
    A: Apparently, as of today, iTunes in Japan and China is selling the whole book.

    James Roberts ‏@jroberts332 8h8 hours ago
    Q: How come?
    A: I imagine it's an accident that has to do with the original release date not being changed. I don't know the details. (6/?)

    James Roberts ‏@jroberts332 8h8 hours ago
    Q: And?
    A: And it pains me that random, spoiler-heavy panels/pages, out of both context and sequence, will spread everywhere over the next >

    James Roberts ‏@jroberts332 8h8 hours ago
    > two weeks, making it nigh-on impossible for readers to approach this exceptionally important issue as the creative team intended. >>

    James Roberts ‏@jroberts332 8h8 hours ago
    You won't read the issue as it was written or experience it as it was designed to be experienced. Furthermore, sales could take a dent. >>

    James Roberts ‏@jroberts332 8h8 hours ago
    So please, if you've happened upon some pages from #50 that aren't 4, 5 or 6, don't share them.

    This thread is really not on. Whether you purchased the book legitimately or not, the vast majority of people won't get it for another two weeks. It was pure chance that ITunes Japan/China fluffed up the release date.

    Guys, this is utterly ridiculous. Roberts himself isn't sure why it was released and it could fully have to do with itunes of other countries not being bothered with last-minute delays (which seems a little shit when they won't even tell us the reason for it). He doesn't even ask for people not to talk about it or buy it because that would be ridiculous, he just asks that people not posts scans of it, which is a reasonable request.

    To not talk about it or to lock the thread is BS and absolutely hypocritical. Nobody refused to talk about the Beast Hunters movie when its street date was broken (even when most people actually were watching it through illegal means) or when the first season finale of Prime was aired earlier than it was mean't to be or when RiD aired in Australia and China way before anywhere else (which is practically the same scenario here).

    If you want to wait for your countries street-date and avoid spoilers, that's entirely your own prerogative, but don't come in and say people can't talk about an issue of a comicbook when it has been acquired by perfectly legal means. Stay out of this topic for the next two weeks and don't click spoiler tags. It's not rocket science.

    Sometimes I love the comic side of the fandom, but goddamn sometimes you're the most anal and annoyingly holier-than-thou people around. This very site front-pages illegal leaked photos on a regular basis, for heaven's sake! You don't see people bitching about how wrong it feels and asking mods to lock the thread until the Hasbro reveals them there... and that's a hell of a lot shadier... but how DARE people talk about a comicbook they've paid the publisher to read! The bastards!

    I agree with Starscream Gaga here. The purpose of this thread is to discuss the issue. Whether it's a comic, tv episode or early release figure - how you got it is irrelevant.
    We shouldn't support leaking material, so don't share anything. But want to talk about the stuff? This is THE place - respecting the use of spoiler tags obviously, just to be sure.

    Just read the book. Despite what anyone thinks of 'season 2', I feel this was pretty damn good. I also liked the second story that to me had a MUCH better balance between tying old threads together and self-indulgence than the Swearth Sitcom.

    In fact, both #50s were pretty great. Well done, IDW teams!

    I'm sure some posts like this will eventually happen in this thread:

    "I don't like spoilers!"

    "I'm going to check out this thread that warns about spoilers and complain about spoilers!"

    This has got to be the biggest mess of a release for MTMTE ever.

    I want to read it too.

    I get the physical copies from the geek shops in Birmingham City centre and the staff in the shop said there was Idw comics (alongside other companies works) today as there was some kind of storm or whether problem that lead to loads getting jettisoned on the roadside and they are not sure when they are getting more. What a ball-ache
