Because it's a 'test' issue, a limited-run prototype.

I've said elsewhere, I find the concept of naming issues '0' a little bit laughable - what next? Others trying to outdo this new style of launch by counting backwards with their issue numbers?

If I launch a magazine, I promise you all a free copy of the -XY issue. And each subsequent issue will come out according to complex astrological calculations involving transits of Mercury, and delivered to shops along ley lines.

the fact test issues are named "0" is nothing new ...
at least it existed in the 90s and 80s ... i already met test issues (art fanzines and magazines) named 0 in archives ... though i cannot explain where it's coming from ...

Yeah, I read the posts that said that, after I posted that comment


To be honest, if it's one of those issues, I think I can get my hands on one... If I do, I'll definitely scan the pags for you guys!

Me, I had never seen major magazines bring out '0' issues before this recent rash of Numeros and D&Cs did so.

When more commercial titles like Glamour launch a new edition, they aren't 'arty' enough to ever bother bringing out a '0' edition, which is why I have formed the impression that it's yet another of those rebellious poses that alternative style magazines like to use (and I usually find their rebellion most tedious). And now every new style mag seems to launch with a '0' issue, so there's not even anything alternative about it anymore.

So in my maths book, '0' issue = full of nothing.
