Another Successful Campaign
In the early hours of the morning, we hit our final goal on the Kickstarter campaign of £2510…
We just wanted to thank everyone who has supported us on this and the indiegogo campaign in November. We especially want to thank Liam Sharp and Bill Sienkiewicz for allowing us to push this on their Facebook wall.
Here’s the Hellboy cover and a few of the interior pages from the new print magazine too
Liam Sharp, who is featured in the mag, had this Ito say on getting an early copy of the magazine:
You humble me beyond words. The Tripwire anniversary issue is lavish and wonderful, and your inclusion and appreciation of my efforts across the board are both profoundly affecting and hugely appreciated. Moments like this make the slog feel valid and my preposterous dreams feel worth while.
Thank you mate! You’re awesome. LOVED the gallery too! Astonishing company!
Very best always and take care!
Tripwire Magazine Autumn Special will be a glossy 144 page A4 squarebound magazine chock full of all manner of great, unique material
Tripwire has always been about celebrating the art of comics, film and TV and the creators and production wizards who continue to make it the vibrant and exciting place it is.
Tripwire has always been a middlebrow publication, offering the kind of accessible interviews, features and reviews with quality journalism from the best in the field.
The Tripwire winter special is packed full of the sort of quality content people have come to expect:
Under a Dark Horse at 35 Years cover, the issue includes:
Tripwire celebrating 60 years of Marvel’s favourite family the Fantastic Four With John Byrne, Walter Simonson and Brian Michael Bendis; Happy 40th birthday Indiana Jones: celebrating four decades since the first appearance of Lucas and Spielberg’s adventurer with exclusive chat with legendary poster artist Drew Struzan (Indiana Jones, Star Wars); An exclusive chat with Liam Sharp about his creator-owned work, Batman: Reptilian and more; 40 Years of An American Werewolf in London, Comic Creator photos of key figures like Alan Moore, Bill Sienkiewicz, Walter Simonson and others by Tripwire editor-in-chief Joel Meadows; Scott Braden’s Lost Tales: Alan Weiss’ Batman plus much more.
Its archive section this time around features classic interviews with the late, great Joe Kubert, an extensive career interview with Drew Struzan and acclaimed African-american comic writer-artist Kyle Baker talks about his project King David and more. Also the return of the Stripwire section including a new Sherlock Holmes and The Empire Builders strip by Tripwire editor-in-chief Joel Meadows and artist Andy Bennett, the strip which Jimmy Palmiotti said about it: “Joel Meadows is the right guy with the perfect voice to continue the adventures of the world’s greatest sleuth, Sherlock Holmes,”, a Fred The Clown one pager by Roger Langridge and the return of Kent Menace by Scott Braden, Jeff Dillon and John Charles.
This time around the campaign will include T-shirts, limited edition Sherlock Holmes art prints, Tripwire cover prints and more. It will also offer limited edition Tripwire cover pastiche posters featuring reinterpretations of classic comic covers like New Teen Titans#1, Hulk Annual#1 and many more.
Tripwire continues to be read and appreciated by the movers and shakers in the comics industry: “Tripwire is always well researched and enthusiastic, by people who truly care about the importance of story. It’s analytical without losing heart.” – JH Williams III, Promethea, Echolands.
“Tripwire covers such a wide variety of topics in the world of news, entertainment and the arts, and covers them so well, that it’s pretty much become my go-to source for what’s going on in media. I know if Tripwire is covering a subject, it’s not only interesting, fun and informative, it’s also legit.”- Blll Sienkiewicz, illustrator
”Tripwire has been for nearly three decades the touchstone of comic book culture in the U.K and one of the leading periodicals dedicated to this narrative art form. Incisive, smart and always relevant.” – Guillermo del Toro (Oscar winning director, The Shape Of Water)
“In an industry and a world full of uncertainty, the constants that Tripwire offers in all its forms — great reporting, interesting information captivatingly presented, beautiful graphic design — are always a welcome thing. Joel Meadows and his team never fail to remind me why I love comics as much as I do, and why I feel the same about Tripwire, too.” – Chris Ryall, formerly of IDW
We were so pleased with the support we received last time around and we have an even more impressive package this time around. We continue to offer the kind of material that no one does and even though we love putting our website together, a print magazine does something that an online offering cannot.
Our target is slightly lower than it was on our previous campaign as we need to make sure we pay our journalists, artists and contributors on the new print magazine. We feel that this is the only fair way to proceed here.
