Doctor Who Insider Magazine
Just got a copy of Doctor Who Insider Magazine, First Issue.
44 Pages. Published by Panini.
Slick publication. Haven't read it cover to cover yet but I like what I see. In particular, I like the fact that it is a normal sized magazine. It'll fit into a 8.75 x 11 standard magazine bag with a regular backer board... yes, all of my Who mags and comics are given the royal treatment. They are treated like collectibles. I also like the fact that most of the type in the magazine is not a strain on the eye. Back in the day of newsprint paper (remember those?) it seemed text had to be a bit on the large size just to overcome the graininess of the stock. With the advent of slicker stock came smaller type, and I understand how that not only reduces production costs AND increases the amount of information a page can convey, but it also can make you very eye-tired reading it. DWI seems to strike a balnce with all 3 considerations.
