STRIP Magazine Issue 1 will be on sale in UK comic shops from 2nd November. Unfortunately it arrived too late last week to be included in Diamond shipments for this week.

However, because of the slippage, the e-edition is now on sale before the print edition. So for those of you with iPads, you can buy it via http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/strip-magazine-1/id474222695?mt=8

And if you need reminding what to expect:

Quote:
STRIP Magazine is an all-ages adventure anthology comic featuring some great art and stories from some brilliant creators including PJ Holden (Judge Dredd), John McCrea (Hitman, The Boys), Michael Penick (Insurrection), John Ridgway and many more!

Offering a range of strip stories, comics news, interviews and features, plus a fully re-mastered version of the classic British comic strip Hookjaw, this is a first issue you will not want to miss!

STRIP Magazine Issue One includes Black Ops Xtreme, drawn by PJ Holden; Warpaint by Phil Hester and John McCrea; Age of Heroes by James Hudnall and John Ridgway; Hookjaw, re-mastered by Jim Campbell and Gary Caldwell; 'Hush Hush' a prequel story to Stephen Walsh and Keith Page's Iron Moon graphic album; Recovery Inc. by Michael Penick
and Dean Deckard; and the first winners of our special Strip Challenge, Graham and David Stoddard

PLUS - a look back at 1970s classic British comic Action; and an exclusive interview with comic artist PJ Holden!


Much thanks to everyone who has posted info on where they are ordering from. I've added web links to all the shops who've said they're stocking STRIP Magazine to our blog at http://stripcomicmagazineuk.blogspot.com/

A number of people have tried in vain to use the main web site subscription page - we're painfully aware of the issues with this and hope they will be resolved by early next week (beginning 31st October).

Wednesday is just around the corner.

A pity that I am away for the weekend (wedding) so pretty much have no chance buying off the shelf. My original plan was to pop up London and get a couple of copies from Forbidden Planet.

I'll get them off the internet instead.

ALERT - I bought a copy of Strip magazine about two hours ago from Worlds Apart in Lime Street, Liverpool. There were eleven copies left on the shelf when I left. The guy I spoke to had never heard of it but a female assistant remembered it as a larger-size publication, and knew where they had been stacked.

Issue 2 was advertised in the back of iss 1 to appear on 17th nov, seeing as i doubt that it will make that date as iss 1 was delayed is there a new date yet.

Still can't subscribe through http://www.printmediaproductions.com.

So it looks like I will be ordering the second issue from the Forbidden Planet website on the 1st December.
