But - let´s face it - it won´t take long and the magazines as we love them, will have gone extinct :-(
Year after year we loose another magazine and the whole market is becoming smaller and smaller, which is a pretty sad development. I see the chances - of course - as well (cutting printing costs, distribution etc. etc. ) BUT still - I don´t like it...
Enough complaining - there is good within the digital publishing world as well and one of those things is ISSUU. I have just learned, that there is a digital only STAR WARS magazine called THE EMPIRE!
In their own words:
The EMPIRE monthly is the official web-magazine of the 501st Legion Russian Outpost. The 501st Legion is a worldwide Star Wars costuming organization comprised of and operated by Star Wars fans. While it is not sponsored by Lucasfilm Ltd., it is Lucasfilm's preferred Imperial costuming group.
It´s a fan magazine covering the activities of the 501s and it looks promising - you can check it out here:
And now that I have lured you to ISSUU, you should try to run the term STAR WARS through their digital library, or you just click here - there you go - lots of new and old mags and books (though I do have my concerns about the copyright situation for some publications. Anyway - enjoy!
