STRIP Magazine #4 on sale next week

Good news at last from Print Media Productions. STRIP Magazine #4 has finally arrived in the UK and will be on sale in British comic shops next week.

In the latest edition of the all-ages adventure anthology comic, which features a cracking cover by John McCrea, the Black Ops Extreme military squad are sent on a mission to destroy a nuclear power station in the Middle East (story by John Freeman and PJ Holden; there's the start of a new Age of Heroes tale by James Hudnall and John Ridgway; the war between gods hots up in Warpaint by Phil Hester and John McCrea; Nazis hunt for access to a dangerous power in pre-war France in The Devil's Heritage by Jerome Felix and Paul Gastine; a diver finds out even baby sharks can be deadly in Hook Jaw, re-mastered by Jim Campbell; and science goes mad and bad in the Strip Challenge story "Slayer Keith" by David Hailwood, Stu Smith and Dave Thomson!

The issue also includes interviews with Devil's Heritage creators Jerome Felix and Paul Gastine and Andrew Wildman, best known for his work on Transformers.

PMP has also announced that they are making Issue 5 of their first volume a double issue (so there will now be no #6 Volume 1) to close some storylines and clear the decks for the new line-up in #1 Volume 2, their first news stand issue, on sale at the end of May.

PMP say this double issue will only count as a single issue as far as subscribers are concerned to thank them for their loyalty.

PMP has a new mailing list: to subscribe, follow this link:

Interesting. I wasn't aware of the newstand delay since I only by the iPad version. I hope they keep the Devil's Heritage going for Vol 2. And I wonder whatever happened to the Napoloenic era strip (Lawless)?

John Freeman said...

Devil's Heritage will continue - PMP have had great feedback on the story. Lawless is still in the melting pot!
