Talking of which, I haven't received my copy through the post yet (subscription). I wonder if I will get it by Saturday?

The Strip Magazine facebook reports that information about issue 2 will be coming in a few days... they need a better distributor! The Iron Moon got delayed for ages too.

Issue 2 was due in shops yesterday & after the 1st issue was delayed as well its not gonna look to good for them trying to establish a new comic.perhaps they should have delayed iss 1 by a few months & tried to sort out a distribution deal with whs & newsagents even though orbidden planet london did sell out of the 1st batch they got in.

I've just pre-ordered a copy of Strip Magazine #2 via the Forbidden Planet website. FP say they expect to receive their copies on Dec 6.

Well I haven't received my copy yet via mail order. Will be interesting to see if it comes before the projected 6th December.

According to the Down The Tubes blog (http://downthetubescomics.blogspot.com/):

"Due to a small but unexpected delivery delay from Bosnia, the print edition will not be on sale until 14th December, for which publishers Print Media Productions have apologized."

SID found this message on Facebook:
Strip Magazine UK : We're very conscious that delays to planned publication dates disappoint readers. Strip is printed in Bosnia and was on time for the announced publication date - but we are finding, despite now working with better couriers, that Customs and other links in the delivery chain still confiund our plans. Right now, we're looking at ways to surmount this, but it will take time to build more delivery schedule allowances into our existing plans. All that said, we're still getting re-orders for #1 , so the actual pub date doesn't seem to matter a jot to some retailers!
