STRIP Magazine fans waiting for the arrival of the print edition of Print Media’s adventure anthology – victim to ongoing import issues – may be interested to know that Issue 5 for iPad is being worked on now by ROK Comics and should be submited to Apple sometime next week.
The price of all back issues of STRIP Magazine for iPad has also just been dropped to £1.99 per issue.
Print Media says they decided to delay submission of STRIP Issue 5 to Apple in view of the distribution issues for the print edition, but with changes to the company’s plans for the title’s relaunch that have superceded some copy in the print edition, the digital STRIP Issue 5 (which will also be priced at £1.99) will include updated pages from the ‘real world’ magazine, as well as some trailer imagery for the new-look to the title.
The iPad edition will have less pages than the print verison of Issue 5 but some exclusive trailer images from the revamp, and we have also updated ‘Comic Cuts’ to reflect the change of launch plans.
Print Media have announced they will be publishing a digital only version of STRIP in July. This special Issue 6 will wrap some storylines that complete in the print ‘bumper’ version of Issue 5, as well as again trailing the new look STRIP.

The special issue will also use some pages to promote new British comics and projects. If British and Irish comic creators would like to have a plug for their own indpendently created titles in the digital-only issue, direct Print Media via infoATprintmediaproductions.com to a 1536 x 1920 image they’ll consider for inclusion. On your left is an example of the kind of image they’re looking for.
They will also consider running strip samples but they must be action adventure, SF, fantasy or one page humour – no horror or adult comics, no swearing and no excessive violence.
The digital issues of STRIP – for iPad only at present – are now available for just £1.99 each.
