Right now, there are a few acts of bravery that the common man can do which takes an exceptional amount of confidence and courage. No, we are not talking about arming up and heading off to a battle, even though it might be quite equally distressing. We are talking about going into print and creating magazines. With publications folding left and right, and everything moving off the newsstands and going online, it takes quality, thought and niche for a magazine to survive. However, the good thing is that, in this climate, we know the survivors still thriving in tangible forms are indeed good reads that one can invest in.
