Hot July for Striker - and Psycops!

July is shaping up to be a frantic month as we prepare for the release of three new publications. Here's the latest news:


STRIKER: THE FINAL WHISTLE

The final episode of Striker will be featured in a commemorative 52-page collectors' edition of the comic titled Striker: The Final Whistle. Priced at £4.95 with a perfect bound gloss cover, it will go on sale at our online shop from Thursday, July 4, and will be printed around the middle of July (exact date to be confirmed shortly).


We're working with our distributors to make the comic available in as many newsagents as possible - but the quickest and easiest way to ensure you don't miss out is to buy from our shop and have it mailed to you direct from the printing house. If you haven't done so already, sign up and register at the bottom of our home page to make sure you receive email notifications from Striker HQ.


A digital version version is also being considered.  


At least 33 pages of The Final Whistle will be all-new comic strips, picking up from where issue 24 left off and bringing Striker to a fitting finale after 34 memorable years in print.


There will also be a frank and revealing interview with the original 'Mr Striker' Nick Jarvis, plus a special Nashy's News column from Striker creator Pete Nash. He explains that while Striker is coming to an end as a comic and newspaper strip, there will hopefully be a new future for Striker in a different format.


Comics guru John Freeman from downthetubes.net will be writing about Striker and the state of the UK comic industry - and there will be a special Fanzone section.


PSYCOPS: ALL 18 EPISODES IN ONE MASSIVE BOOK

It's an open secret that Pete Nash - under the pseudonym Wilbur - created another serialised comic strip called Psycops that ran in The Sun alongside Striker from July, 1994, to the start of 1999. The adventures are being reprinted in their entirety for the very first time in a 304-page book available as a softcover version and a limited edition of 250 signed hardbacks. Prices will be announced shortly.
