Gygaz Magazine was released to much pomp and circumstance this past winter. The idea was to capture the feeling and joy of the Dragon magazines of old and it did this. For one issue.
I was/am a yearly subscriber but yet I have no idea really when Issue #2 will arrive. This is despite the communications on their Facebook and Twitter pages.
The main trouble here is trying to release a new print magazine in this day and age. Most print magazines are failing and some, like Newsweek and Dragon, have gone over to all digital format.
Gamers can be be obstinate to the point of pig-headedness (and old school gamers even more so) when it comes to print, but sometimes economic reality is, well, reality.
It's not as if the content of the magazine doesn't have value, sales of the print and pdf versions can attest to that. Is the value worth more than the cost to print, sell and ship. One issue I have heard coming up is the rise of shipping costs which I am sure is the killer for most magazines.
I hope things get worked out for Gygax. I'd like to see it succeed.
