Independent Publishing

Soutie Press

Soutie Press is an independent publishing house based in Cape Town, South Africa. We specialise in niche interests like fly fishing and cult comics. 

We also provide custom publishing services.

The Mission is a bimonthly fly fishing magazine available for free in both print and digital formats. Put together by Editor Tudor Caradoc-Davies, Art Director Brendan Body (formerly of Session skateboarding magazine and The Lake) and Editor-at-large Conrad Botes (Bitterkomix, Lag-Lag), it is packed with humour, art, incredible imagery and top-notch story-telling.

What really sets The Mission apart is that it focuses on the “why you should” aspect of fly fishing instead of the classic “how to” approach.

The long-term (three decades and counting) creative partnership between artists Anton Kannemeyer (Joe Dog) and Conrad Botes (Konradski), Bitterkomix is both South Africa’s best and most controversial satirical comic. Presenting a dark, biting critique of the conservative, Afrikaner cultural mainstream and the state of the world in general, Bitterkomix offers a brilliant riposte to the would-be censors of our time.

As acerbic, humourous and dark as ever, in their signature style the duo’s comic strips, essays and stories continue to take readers to uncomfortable places, probing and questioning at all that is uneasy about our society.
