Comics and film magazine Tripwire moves from print to digital with app launch

Comics, film and TV magazine Tripwire has moved from print into digital with the launch new app edition.

Until 2011, Tripwire ran as a once a year print title costing £9.99 – and following a two-year gap a 21st anniversary edition was released in May 2013.

The new app,  Tripwire Digital, is designed for tablets and inclides streaming audio as well as 70 pages of content.

Editor-in-chief Joel Meadows said: “We were looking at a means of keeping Tripwire out there on a regular basis and utilising new formats, and a digital app seemed to be the obvious route to achieve this.”

Tripwire digital will be published every two months and each edition will cost £1.99 from iTunes, with two free samples available.

Tripwire's fans include fantasy author Michael Moorcock who said: "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.."
