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.

The Bad, Bad Place by David Hine and Mark Stafford continues in the second issue of Meanwhile..., and is featured on the fabulous cover by Mark. Strangehaven by Gary Spencer Millidge continues with an all-new sixteen-page episode, and there’s a new installment of Yuko Rabbit’s 10 Minutes. This issue also unveils original strips by Krent Able, Jenny Robins, Krystian Garstkowiak and Euan Cook.

Meanwhile... is well worth the lingering over, a damn fine example of how great an anthology can be, whether it’s single strips or the ongoing tales, there’s absolutely something for everyone.” – Richard Bruton, Forbidden Planet

You couldn’t ask for a more diverse range of strips, and it’s this eccentricity that gives Meanwhile... a unique place on the shelf. [It’s] a tantalising prospect, one which not only looks to the past, giving an incomplete opus the finale it deserves, but to the future of independent comic talent and unconventional storytelling.” – Carl Doherty, Shelf Abuse

“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.”

“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

•Comics retailer

“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.”
