CLiNT magazine

With magazines seemingly closing every day, it's great to hear about a new title set to hit newsstands later in the year.

CLiNT is the brainchild of comic creator Mark Millar and will feature strips from UK comedian Frankie Boyle and TV presenter Jonathan Ross, as well as Millar’s sequel to Kick-Ass.

Millar calls the magazine, published in association with Titan Magazines, as "The Eagle for the 21st Century". 

“There are absolutely no comic-books aimed at 16-30 year old guys and I think CLiNT has potential to make an enormous impact, bringing a new type of magazine to a new generation," says Millar.

“I want this to be edgy and irreverent, the kind of thing guys will be passing around lunch-halls and common rooms, and there’s nobody I’d rather have creating new characters for CLiNT than Jonathan and Frankie. They’re both brilliant writers and will surprise a lot of people with this stuff.”

Alongside four serialised comic-strips, each issue will carry interviews and features covering movies, games and TV. It looks set to be packed full of exciting writers, with Millar adding, “We have the most insane line-up of creators ready to come in and join us. You’d be amazed how many people who work in film and television want to be comic-book writers. It’s very exciting and we think we’re creating something potentially enormous here.”

The first issue of the 100-page magazine will be on sale on September 2, and will then be published on a four-weekly basis.
