The men’s lifestyle magazine Nuts has signed up the cult football comic Striker – four months after its daily run in The Sun newspaper came to an end.
The strip follows the triumphs and tribulations of the Warbury Warriors and was created 25 years ago by Pete Nash, who has given Nuts exclusive print rights.
The computer-generated Striker will appear on one page every week from 26 January.
Nash said: “A weekly format, rather than daily, will give me time to work on developing Striker into a movie and possible TV series.
“Talks are at an advanced stage with two producers and I can’t wait to see Striker characters come to life in Nuts and then on screen.”
