Back After Nine Years
We’ve just launched our indiegogo campaign and here’s the final cover design for the direct market cover, our exclusive Flash at 80 image created by the very talented David Michael Beck, who we are also lucky enough to call our friend too…
Tripwire Magazine Spring Special will be a glossy 144 page A4 squarebound magazine chock full of all manner of great, unique material:
Under two covers (A Flash 80th anniversary cover exclusively created by illustrator David Michael Beck for the direct market and a Kieron Gillen Once and Future cover for those who support us here on indiegogo) the Spring Special contains the kind of material people familiar with Tripwire’s history would expect:
