Strip Magazine Moves To The News Stand

13 - 1

Strip was an anthology magazine launched in the UK a couple of years ago by a Bosnian publisher Print Media featuring some rather familiar names. Seven issues later, it kind of disappeared into the UK scene, never really selling enough, never really making enough of a big splash. Criticised as being “dad” comics, it just seemed to… vanish.

Now it’s relaunching and, rather than aiming at the comic store market, it is going for the famously cruel and harsh UK newsagent scene.

 John Freeman has revived King Cobra from the 1970s Hotspur comic with Wamberto Nicomedes, as well as starting a creator owned strip with 2000AD artist Smuzz, Crucible, which was originally planned for the Epic line a couple of decades ago.


Black Ops Extreme by Richmond Clements and Stephen Downey, fighting eastern European terrorists, Warpaint by Phil Hester and John McCrea, rebooted teenage angst adventure. Operation Inferno by Richmond Clements and Nick Dyer, steampunk espionage. And Denizens by Miljenko Horvatic and Maxim Simic, a post industrial world.

The first magazine has just hit WH Smiths and the independent newsagent network, and there’s a list of stockists here, but for those who find even that too hard, it has also launched as an Apple App.

Future stories include fantasy tale Dragonrir by Miljenko Horvatic and Damir Zitko; crime thriller Deliverer, by Horvatic and Bernard Kolle, Slaine-alike WarWorldz by Stephen Walsh and Giancarlo CaracuzzoThracius, by James Hudnall and Mark Vigoroux, Age of Heroes by James Hudnall and John Ridgway and The Devils Heritage by Jerome Felix and Paul Gastine.
