Meanwhile… is an exciting new addition to the UK comics world.” – David Hine

At last, the series you’ve been waiting for! This brand new, bi-monthly comics anthology from Soaring Penguin Press features the very best of the UK comics scene, including the much-anticipated return of
Strangehaven, the superb self-published series from the 1990s and noughties, returning to print after an eight-year absence to complete the final chapter.

In
Meanwhile... #1, Gary Spencer Millidge’s Strangehaven continues, plus The Bad, Bad Place, a new series by David Hine and Mark Stafford, Chris Geary’s future spy-story, Melody Baker, 10 Minutes by Yuko Rabbit, and Sally Jane Thompson’s Heavy. Rounding out the first issue of Meanwhile are the 2014 British Library & Arts Thread Comics Unmasked Competition Winners.

Strangehaven is the real draw for me, the rest of Meanwhile looks pretty damn good as well.” – Richard Bruton, Forbidden Planet

“Oh my goodness, it’s back. Both of them … [Meanwhile…] had the great and good of the London comics scene and beyond … But the new Meanwhile… has something even more special. It has the return of Strangehaven … It really is an exceptional comic.”

•Comics website

“Writer/illustrator Gary Spencer Millidge has been [self-publishing] since 1995 … Had Millidge chosen to go the work-for-hire route at companies such as Vertigo, he'd undoubtedly be a major star in the business by now. He deserves to be.”

Forbidden Planet

“Yes. Strangehaven is finally coming back … I’ve been a huge fan of Millidge and Strangehaven since first seeing it back in ’95, part of a series of really great self-published UK comics at the time. It was a spectacularly good fantasy series, a little bit Twin Peaks, a little bit Prisoner, all mashed up with a Kinks Village Green soundtrack … [And] the rest of Meanwhile looks pretty damn good as well.”
