    They're trying to shut this title as soon as possible aren't they? This is disastrous.

    Seems that his second name is David not Denzel...

    Couldn't we simply have Denzel?

    He's hot. Gotta do my research.

    Okay cover. Could've been livelier.

    Shoe soles on a cover will never be my thing. And this layout works better when the image is less busy. You have the natural light, the logo on his clothes, the shoes, AND all those fonts? A cluttered mess, and that coral colour looks very random.

    This EIC is taking chances by putting a relatively unknown on the cover of dual months issue. All for fresh blood, but I really doubt this will generate anything for them. Sales, buzz, or otherwise.

    That's a hideous cover but John David Washington is one hell of a fine leading man. He is pretty talented and has a lot of charisma on screen.

    I don’t know that I’d say he’s a relative unknown. He was the Golden Globe and SAG nominated lead in a major Oscar-winning movie 2 years ago, supporting roles in a few other movies. Most importantly, he is the lead in the new Christopher Nolan movie this summer, which is expected to be the first movie released in theaters since early March in the US. If the release date holds, this will be on Newsstands during the film’s theater run. This guy is well on his way to becoming a massive movie star, imo. I think he’s a fantastic and smart cover choice. The photo itself, the layout, art-direction, etc. is all horrendous, though. I mean, the photo isn’t bad by itself, but it makes for a terrible cover.

    Got this in the mail today. 96 pages.

    There's an accessories edit, articles on sprinter Justin Gatlin, the "We Are the World" song, and "How Essential Is My Facial Feminization Surgery?"

    How incredibly pathetic for a quarterly issue, or any issue, really.
