The next issue of the Official World of Warcraft Magazine is due out soon.
I subscribed at BlizzCon 2009 so as to get a plushie and because I’m a bit of a fanboi about the whole affair. The first issue was pretty good, but needed some tweaks (the cover was short and didn’t, you know, cover all of the interior and trying to read white text on a metallic silver background is crazy as bananas).
I was going to write a review of the magazine after the first issue but I decided to hold off until the second and see how everything had shaken out. Having worked on magazines before I know that the difference between initial and the first “real” issue can be like. The second issue, especially on a quarterly, represents a time when procedures should be more ironed out and everyone is a bit more comfortable with what they’re doing. The third issue should be the first “real” issue of the magazine—but I can’t wait that long to opine about it, don’t you know…
