This article is about a specific Bosnian company. For the generic concept, see print media.

Print Media is a Bosnian-based comic and graphic novel publishing company founded by Ivo Milicevic, a veteran of the Bosnian and Croatian comic industries. The company has published the science fiction anthology Plavi in Bosnia and STRIP Magazine in both Bosnia and the UK.

After publishing a number of comic titles in Bosnia, the company started operations in the UK in 2010, publishing six issues of the adventure anthology Strip Magazine for direct sale in comic shops in its first volume.

The title mixed a range of action of adventure strips with features on comic creators, modelled on European magazines with a similar format, with a nod to the weekly British comics of the past such as Valiant, Eagle and Lion.

The company's aim was always to bring STRIP Magazine to the British high street and the first news stand issue was published in April 2013,[1] with Issue 2 following in July 2013 [2] after considerable delay - a problem that beset the company's first volume. Currently, Issue 3 remains unpublished, the company citing "administrative difficulties" in September 2013 [3]
