STRIP Magazine Issue One is available in British comics shops from today. The digital edition for iPad is also available and can be downloaded from the iTunes Store. The cost of either edition is £2.99. (of course, the digital edition doesn’t come with the fab giant Mirabilis poster).
And in case you’d forgotten – STRIP Magazine is an 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!
As the title’s editor, I’d like to thank everyone who’s been involved so far – it’s not been the easiest of ‘births’ – and everyone who’s already bought the iPad edition, or is heading out to buy the comic today.
