It’s not easy to launch a new magazine in today’s digital culture, so you better have some experience and foresight before getting into the business, and when that foresight is centered on the attractiveness of a magazine that celebrates the past, it works even better.
So if the past is your passion (particularly if you grew up in the 1960s, ’70s, or ’80s) you may be interested in TwoMorrow’s RetroFan Magazine. The magazine’s editor, Michael Eury, certainly brings a winning pedigree to RetroFan, as the founder and editor of Back Issue! Magazine (the preeminent publication for comic book fans and collectors of the same decades that RetroFan serves). Eury’s mission, as stated in the editorial that opens the first issue, is to “explore pop-culture through insightful, nostalgic, and fun articles that provide the stories of the stuff that made our childhoods so special” and for the most part, Retro Fan does this to a tee.
