If you're not in the Auckland area don't fear, there will be copies for sale in Wellington at the NZ Comics Weekend this Easter, and in Christchurch on the 9th and 10th of April from Franz Tormers.

Unfortunately this will be the last print issue of 'Radio As Paper' for the time being, as it's publisher Fleet FM is shutting down due to financial problems. However, 'Radio As Paper' will live on in digital format. As it's latest issue is released under a Creative Commons License, once it's initial launch run is over it will be made available for free as a digital download from it's blog and the Fleet FM website.

So pick up this last issue while it's still in print, and keep an eye on the Radio As Paper blog for an future digital developments!
