In the words of both Calvin and cakeandmilque, "My beanie came!!!!"
Yesterday marked the arrival of my first two Geek Monthly magazines, completely confirming the corporeal existence I so wished this magazine to have. No more does it sit along with zombies and vampires in my list of things I think are awesome and desperately wish existed.
And how is it?
For my money, Geek Monthly is by far the most appealing magazine I have ever read, and if it didn't take so long for me to get my hands on copies, I'd suspect that it was created for my benefit alone. Even the ads are interesting to me, whether they be products I'm interested in, clever campaigns (the Dungeons and Dragons ads are particularly amusing) -- or just so utterly perplexing that I haven't the vaguest idea what they're for.
I haven't had a chance to sit down and read through a whole issue yet, but I've had a very difficult time "flipping through" them because every time I try, I keep landing on things I want to actually read and have to stop flipping.
I can't recommend this magazine any more highly, and even though I've not made it though the two I have, I can't wait for the next one.
If you want great magazines from the Los Angeles underground, and if you can find them, maybe you can buy Geek Monthly.
