Is Strip no more?

Post by SID »

Usually there is some sort of word, some murmurings, some sign of activity. But there's been nothing since last September.

Has Strip bailed out for the final time? :(

I've heard nothing definite to put on my blog. I know they had distribution delays with the previous paper issues as it's printed in Bosnia, but even the third digital edition hasn't appeared.

One of its stories, Crucible has spun off into a digital comic though, featuring material already seen in Strip plus previously unseen chapters:

As posted on the other hand, the future of the title is very much in the hands of the publisher.

It's apparently in "holding" pattern Bri but without any definitive news of a re-launch date.

It is definitely make or break this time.

I am happy to wait for a long as necessary but unfortunately it is not enough that it does come out but it has to be regular after that be it monthly, twice a year or even annually.

Since it's been over a year since we have heard any news I'm assuming the worst.

Sad as it had great potential.

However, if there is ever a comeback then I will be one of the first to get it. :)

In the meantime, if there's a gap then there's always alternatives. How about Spaceship Away? A great retro comic and the silent saviour of Dan Dare.

Spaceships Away is quite a different beast though. Have to admit, although Fifties Eagle looks good, the stories are a little staid for my liking.
