STRIP Magazine’s courier curse strikes again

Courier problems have hit STRIP Magazine again, meaning the planned launch date had to be pushed back.

STRIP Magazine is printed in Bosnia and shipped from there. After problems with Strip Zero earlier in the year it was shipped earlier than required – but still not long enough, it appears, for the couriers to make a hash of things.

In a statement, Print Media Productions say they will advise of a new on sale as soon as possible.

“Please be assured we’re working closely with Diamond to get our first issue into UK comic shops as soon as we can.

“Naturally, we are extremely disappointed and annoyed by this turn of events and we know that this news will disappoint many people waiting for the Magazine’s debut.”

  1. The UK has been waiting a long time for a new adventure comic. Another week or two won’t hurt. Keep up the good work John!
