STRIP Magazine Issue 2 – Revised Release Date announced

STRIP: The Adventure Coics Magazine Issue 2Much later than expected or planned, Print Media has just announced that the print edition of STRIP: The Adventure Comics Magazine Issue 2 should now be on sale in newsagents from Thursday 20th June 2013.

In a statement on its blog, the company says the delayed publication is the result of a major change to the way STRIP is brought to readers. After innumerable distribution delays that have plagued the title since launch, because of printing in Bosnia, Print Media publisher Ivo Milicevic decided to print and distribute the title in the UK.

Subscription copies are also being handled from the UK.“The changeover and behind the scenes administration involved in this has taken longer to resolve than expected,” said Mr Milicevic, “but the change should mean the Magazine will no longer suffer delivery delays and import issues associated with past releases.

“We would like to apologize to our readers who have been kept waiting for Issue 2 for far longer than was expected by anyone involved.”

Revised release dates for Issue 3 onwards will be published in due course.
