Dear All,
As I am sure that many of you are big comics, genre or sci fi fans, TRIPWIRE is crowd funding for a TRIPWIRE 21st anniversary book on Kickstarter. It's going to be an amazing book, in paperback and limited edition hardcover but we need your support to get us there. We are on 47% with 16 days to go so I know we can do it. Here's some information on the book and the URL on Kickstarter. Thanks for listening


2013 is a milestone year for TRIPWIRE. This year, the magazine celebrates twenty-one years of publication, moving from a primitive stapled fanzine to a full colour lavish magazine with high production values. In its two decades of existence, they have interviewed every major mover and shaker in the world of comics and genre, from Alan Moore to Frank Miller, Joss Whedon to Guillermo Del Toro and back again.


“We have made it our mission to reflect and analyse in an accessible and intelligent way the major trends in comics, film, TV and genre. So when we decided to commemorate the anniversary of TRIPWIRE, we wanted to do something that would be really special and would reflect the continuing ethos of the magazine. So TRIPWIRE 21st anniversary will be a must-buy book, a limited edition hardcover through crowdfunding website Kickstarter, and in paperback also available at your local comic shop,” editor-in-chief Joel Meadows revealed.

Clocking in at 176 pages and A4 in size, the book will include classic TRIPWIRE interviews with creators like Mike (Hellboy) Mignola, Alan (Watchmen, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) Moore, Frank Quitely (All-Star Superman, Batman & Robin), Grant Morrison (Batman Inc., Joe The Barbarian), Peter Milligan (Hellblazer, Justice League Dark), James (Starman, The Shade) Robinson and more. Also, it will feature a lot of brand new material like a selection of features looking at the key trends and issues of the past twenty years like the best and worst comic and genre movies 1992-2012, the twenty comic creators who have come to prominence over the last twenty years and topics like digital comics, the rise of the independent graphic novel and much more. It will also include a gallery of images, a selection of rarely seen and new for the book, from a stellar line-up of the best comic artists and illustrators in the business including:

Tim Bradstreet

Howard Chaykin

Dave Dorman

Garen Ewing

Duncan Fegredo

Henry Flint

Phil Hale

Jon Haward

Michael Kaluta

Joe Kubert

Roger Langridge

David Morris

Mike Mignola

Mike Perkins

Sean Phillips


Frank Quitely

Greg Ruth


Walter Simonson

Drew Struzan

Dave Taylor

Ben Templesmith

Chris Weston


“It will be a celebration of both 21 years of acclaimed magazine TRIPWIRE but also a look back at the seismic changes that have occurred in the comics industry. We have always loved comics and genre and with the current huge cultural impact that comics has thanks to the huge success of Avengers and Batman on the big screen and The Walking Dead on TV, we thought it was the perfect time to bring this out. So here is the URL on Kickstarter

 “We are already nearly halfway through our Kickstarter campaign in terms of our target but we need everyone’s help to get us there. We have a number of exciting events planned in May including a launch at the Bristol Comic Expo the weekend of 11th -12th May and a TRIPWIRE 21 evening with Christopher Fowler, Peter Milligan, Roger Langridge and Mike Carey on 16th May. It is going to be the best thing we’ve ever put out,” Meadows continues.

"Hard to believe Tripwire is already 21 - and looking more youthful than ever. Still the coolest magazine on the planet, and helping young and old alike fritter away their lives with the best coverage of comics, film, TV, and games. All hail, and here's to the next21!"-  IAN RANKIN, author Rebus


"TRIPWIRE really is a breath of fresh air. Its layouts are superb, with great well-written features perfectly set off by the pictures, adding clarity and intelligence to every page. And it keeps on doing it. Amazing, Gratifying. A pleasure to look at, a pleasure to read..."  MICHAEL MOORCOCK, fantasy legend (Elric, Hawkmoon)


"TRIPWIRE is pop-culture champagne, the one-stop must-have magazine for all that’s cool and classy in comics, film & TV. I’d be an uncultured loon without it."-  CHRISTOPHER FOWLER, writer, Bryant & May, Roofworld


"TRIPWIRE is essential reading — one of the best on the market!"-  MARK VERHEIDEN, TV writer, Falling Skies


"TRIPWIRE has been, for more than two decades the touchstone of comic book culture in the UK and one of the leading periodicals dedicated to this narrative art form. Incisive, smart and always relevant."- Guillermo del Toro, Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth, Pacific Rim

I don't think this is the right place for you to advertise this. I'm pretty sure you're spamming, so please don't do that anymore.
