Tripwire Returns!

Recommended Posts





Between 1992 and 2003 TRIPWIRE was the UK’s premiere comics features magazine, covering graphic storytelling and related fields in detail. Past contributors and interviewees include:


Alan Moore

Frank Miller

Joss Whedon

Peter Milligan

Mike Mignola

Brian Bendis

Will Eisner

Todd McFarlane

… among others before ceasing publication as a periodical.


Now TRIPWIRE is back, this time in full color book format, published annually each July to coincide with the San Diego Comic Con.


TRIPWIRE ANNUAL will reflect both industry and artform in the same incisive, intelligent and unique manner that the magazine did for over a decade.


"After a four year publishing break, we thought it was time to return and the annual format adapts to the changed market very comfortably. TRIPWIRE Annual will be published every summer to reflect the comic book industry and its related fields," TRIPWIRE editor Joel Meadows explains.


The first annual has an impressive and diverse line-up: Guillermo Del Toro and Mike Mignola talk about Hellboy 2; Frank Miller discusses 300 - the movie, Sin City 2 and his unique interpretation of Will Eisner's classic The Spirit on the screen in 2008; Jeph Loeb and Bryan Fuller spill the beans on The SciFi Channel’s hit superhero TV series Heroes; and, in the year that Homer and family reach the big screen, the annual will examine how The Simpsons have sustained their massive appeal for nearly two decades.


We pass a critical eye over events in the comics industry over the past year and offer some predictions for the next, Alan Moore discusses Lost Girls, and his new novel and we'll be celebrating Judge Dredd's 30th anniversary.


Graced with a brand new Hellboy cover by Duncan Fegredo, TRIPWIRE ANNUAL 2007 will be distributed to bookstores in and the direct market in the UK and US. Cover price £9.95/ $14.95 US, 128 pages full colour, shipping in August and solicited in the May issue of Previews


Be at San Diego Comic Con in July 2007 for the launch of the first TRIPWIRE ANNUAL - likely to continue the respected, and occasionally controversial, reputation of its magazine progenitor.
