take Tripwire to the next level

Tripwire started life as a magazine way back in 1992 and we switched to the web in 2015. In 26 years, we have become one of the pre-eminent comics and genre publications in the UK, with fans like Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro, Weta Workshop maestro Richard Taylor, best-selling author Ian Rankin and The Simpsons and Futurama creator Matt Groening. We are looking to take things to the next level and develop our remit and our brand and to do this, we shall require a small financial boost. The funds raised would be hugely beneficial to us as it would allow us to pay contributors to the site as well as enhance the site’s software and feel.

Although it’s unusual for us to ask directly for people’s assistance, we feel that this is a worthwhile endeavour as we have been such mainstays of the UK comics industry for many years.  Money raised will help us to pay contributors, assist with running costs (things like upgrades and hosting) and also facilitate things like increased new originated content like videos and more interactive features. It will allow us to continue to support UK independent comics the way we have done for many years now too.
We shall need the funds fairly soon as we have plans for the website we would like to put into place by the end of this year. So we are looking to conclude our campaign by the end of December 2018.

Thanks for reading and thanks for your continued support.

  “Tripwire represents that most precious gem: a pop culture publication by fans, for fans. It is, then, terrifically exciting to see Tripwire stretch its tentacles firmly into the digital sphere with this superbly curated compendium of genre culture.” – Richard Taylor, Weta Workshop (NZ) (Lord Of The Rings, The Hobbit)

 “TRIPWIRE has been, for more than two decades the touchstone of comic book culture in the UK and one of the leading periodicals dedicated to this narrative art form. Incisive, smart and always relevant.”– Guillermo del Toro, Oscar-winning Director, Shape of Water, Hellboy, Crimson Peak, Pan’s Labyrinth

 
 “Hard to believe that Tripwire is already 25 – and looking more youthful than ever. Still the coolest magazine on the planet, and helping young and old alike fritter away their lives with the best coverage of comics, film, TV and genre. All hail, and here’s to the next 25!” – Ian Rankin, best-selling author, Rebus

Dear all
it has been a very good two months. Thanks to all of your generosity we have hit £500 so far. We shall be keeping it running for a little while longer but we have been very touched by people's kindness. We still have prints left for people who pledge £30 or more and they are very nice indeed by the likes of Sean Phillips, Frank Quitely and Walter Simonson.

Dear all
it has been a week since we launched the campaign and it has got off to a very decent start already with people donating to it. We have decided to make it a little more interesting now.

The prints are all available to see on this tripwire post from earlier this year
