    Forgive me if this has already been addressed elsewhere, but whatever happened with the proposed annual (or whatever) issues of Porter magazine? I was a subscriber and when they went out of print, we all got an email saying that there would be revamped annual issues that would get printed and we (former subscribers) would get the first few for free. Obviously this hasn't happened but I was wondering if anyone had any additional info. Assuming it was scrapped?

    I subscribed and haven't heard anything either. They could at least refund us for our remaining issues..

    ^ His magazine did not even see the light of the day and he already left. Hah. Although, I can't blame him, I think Bazaar was supposed to launch last spring before covid happened. Other Heart titles in Italy are struggling too, Cosmo now comes out every two months, and Marie Claire's heyday seems to be long gone too.

    I predicted this when lockdown started! If the magazine goes bust, they're not obliged to refund subscribers. Going after NAP won't help either because the magazine was an entity.
    That's why I don't subscribe to any magazine anymore, only buy off the newsstand. Their content was trite in the end anyway.
