Print Media has released a special “Taster” guide to STRIP: The Adventure Comics Magazine (now on sale in UK newsagents) which includes the first episode of Black Ops Extreme by John Freeman and PJ Holden (published in the first volume of the title, sold only in UK comic shops and for iPad), and outline plans for new books through 2013 and 2014.
The Supplement which features a cracking cover by John McCrea, coloured by Andrew Elder, was also bundled with the iPad edition of the relaunch issue of STRIP, published last Monday.
Print Media say new subscribers to STRIP Magazine will receive a print edition of this guide as part of their subscription with a future issue.
