Diamond UK have confirmed the print edition of STRIP Magazine #7 will be on sale in UK comic shops from Wednesday 19th December.
This edition of the magazine is a Christmas Special that takes a slightly different form to the usual magazine.
While including an exciting new episode of Phil Hester and John McCrea’s regular series Warpaint, the Magazine is largely devoted to a variety of one off stories, including Citadel – a story created by the late, great French creator Moebius that was first published in a different translation in Heavy Metal magazine back in 1980.
By way of a hint of things to come next year when the regular magazine returns after a break in production to ramp up properly, the team hope, for news stand release, Print Media also offers a sneak peek at several all-new stories including Thracius by James Hudnall and Mark Vigouroux; Denizens (by Miko Horvatic and Maxim Simic); Dan Barton of Space Command (by John Freeman and Andrew Chiu) an affectionate comedy homage to space heroes, which may return as a regular series in late 2013); and Corwin Blays, a festive tale starring a hapless thief!
The digital edition also features some exclusive extras, such as a quirky festive tune when the app is launched, and added ‘data cards’ with background information on the characters and some creators, along with a video trailer for David Lloyd’s digital project, Aces Weekly.
There’s also a bonus taster of PMP’s digital partner ROK Comics titles Houdini and The Beatles Story – only in the digital edition
