Soutie Press

Soutie Press is an independent publishing house based in Cape Town, South Africa.

We provide custom publishing services for books and magazines. We love paper, and believe there is still an important place for this medium in the brand and communications space. 

Our niche interests include fly fishing, cult comics, and food.  

The Mission is a bi-monthly fly fishing magazine available for free in 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.

Since its inception in 2016, The Mission has gone from strength to strength. Our 4000 printed units per issue are strategically distributed aross South Africa (no returns, no pulping) and our digital version is loved around the world.

Our magazine offering is complemented by a growing merchandise and apparel arm, and a big content footprint.

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.

Soutie Press is proud publisher of Bitterkomix 18 and Bitterkomix 19, as well as of solo projects by the artists. We complement this work with a growing apparel line.
