Drawn + Quarterly Publish Rookie Yearbook

Wow.  I started a blog, and a magazine in my thirties. This girl puts me to shame, and has a bright future for sure. Press release from publisher Drawn + Quarterly below.

EDITED BY TAVI GEVINSON, SEPT 2012

THE FIRST PRINTED PUBLICATION EDITED BY TAVI GEVINSON, THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF OF ROOKIE, A WEBSITE FOR TEENAGE GIRLS.

Tavi Gevinson started her personal blog, STYLE ROOKIE in 2008, when she was 11 years old. It was a place where, from the confines of her bedroom in the suburbs, she could write about personal style and chronicle the development of her own. Within two years, the blog was averaging 50,000 hits per day. Soon fashion designers were flying her around the world to attend, and write about, fashion shows, and to be a guest of honor at their parties. Soon Tavi’s interests grew beyond fashion, into culture and art and, especially, feminism. In September 2011, when she was 15, she launched ROOKIE a website for girls like her: teenagers who are interested in fashion and beauty but also in dissecting the culture around them through a uniquely teen-girl lens. ROOKIE broke 1 million page views within its first six days. ROOKIE YEARBOOK ONE will collect articles, interviews, photo editorials, and illustrations from the highly praised and hugely popular online magazine. In its first year, ROOKIE has established a large, inclusive, international community of avid readers. In addition to its 50-plus regular writers, photographers, and illustrators (many of whom are teenage girls themselves), ROOKIE’s contributors and interviewees have included prominent makers of popular culture such as Lena Dunham, Miranda July, Joss Whedon, Jon Hamm, Zooey Deschanel, David Sedaris, Elle Fanning, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, John Waters, Chloe Sevigny, Liz Phair, Dan Savage, JD Samson, Ira Glass, Aubrey Plaza, Daniel Clowes, Carrie Brownstein, Paul Feig, Bethany Cosentino, Kimya Dawson, Fred Armisen, and Winnie Holzman.

As a young teenager, Tavi couldn’t find what she was looking for in a teen magazine; ROOKIE is the one she created herself to fill that void. Her cool-headed intellect shines in ROOKIE, arguably the most intelligent magazine ever made for a teen-girl audience. Tavi writes with a humble but keen authority on such serious topics as body image, self-esteem, and first encounters with street harassment. She’s equally deft at doling out useful advice like how to do a two-minute beehive, or how to deliver an effective bitchface. ROOKIE’s passionate staffers and faithful readers have helped make ROOKIE the strong community that it is. To date, Tavi has written for Harper’s Bazaar, Jezebel, Lula, and Pop, and is a contributing editor for GARAGE magazine. She has been profiled in the New York Times and The New Yorker, and has been on the cover of POP, L’Officiel, Zeit Magazin, and BUST. As a speaker, she has made numerous presentations at venues such as IdeaCity, TEDxTeen, L2 Forum, and the Economist World in 2012 Festival. Last year Lady Gaga called her “the future of journalism.”

BIO: Tavi Gevinson is the editor and founder of ROOKIE. She lives in Oak Park, Illinois, with her family and many piles of candy-bar wrappers.

The Walking Dead Magazine

Could a Game of Thrones mag be next? Press release below, plus the cover, and an alternate cover by TWD artist Charlie Adlard that will only be available through comic shops.

The Walking Dead Magazine – Coming Soon!

Titan Magazines and Skybound are pleased to announce the launch of The Walking Dead, The Official Magazine, based on Robert Kirkman’s Eisner Award-winning comic book series, best-selling graphic novels and Emmy-winning AMC television series based upon them.

Following its transition from groundbreaking comic book to the highest-rated basic cable drama of all time, The Walking Dead has cemented its status, not only as a phenomenon with the wildly diverging fans of horror and of character-driven drama, but as a milestone in quality, mainstream television.

Robert Kirkman, creator/writer of The Walking Dead, debuted the groundbreaking Skybound/Image comic in 2003. In 2010, AMC debuted the hit television series, The Walking Dead, based upon the comic series. The television series became the highest-rated original basic cable drama of all time and an international success in 120 countries and 250 million homes, and counting. In 2011, The Walking Dead graphic novels were the best-selling graphic novels of the year. Now, in 2012, Titan Publishing/Skybound and AMC bring you The Walking Dead, The Official Magazine to answer the burning questions insatiable zombie-loving fans have about the Emmy-winning television show, comics and graphic novels.

The Walking Dead, The Official Magazine will feature an inside look at the comic and show as only a fully sanctioned quarterly can. No one will get more exclusives than this magazine. Get exclusive access to the most successful television adaptation of a comic ever, including in-depth interviews Kirkman, Executive Producer/Writer on the show; Glen Mazzara, Showrunner/ Executive Producer/Writer of the series and David Alpert, Executive Producer of the series. That’s not all, readers will hear from all of the leads on the hit TV show beginning with Andrew Lincoln, who stars as Rick Grimes; Sarah Wayne Callies, who stars as Lori Grimes, and Jon Bernthal, who played fan-favorite bad boy Shane.

To get behind-the-scenes on the set with co-Executive Producer Greg Nicotero and see how he creates the greatest on-screen zombies ever, fans should read The Walking Dead, The Official Magazine. The only way into the closed door writers’ room to learn about the scripting process lies within the magazine’s pages. Fans will also get the opportunity toask Kirkman what’s coming up in future issues of The Walking Dead, or find out how the series artist Charlie Adlard keeps up with the fast pace of the monthly comic so brilliantly.

The Walking Dead, The Official Magazine debuts on October 23 with 100 pages of all access, no holds barred zombie festing and feasting. With all the latest news, revelations and tips for fans of the television show and the graphic novels. Get it, read it or be the last to know all the exclusive scoops for every incarnation of The Walking Dead.

Issue #1 of The Walking Dead, The Official Magazine comes with an alternative cover featuring an exclusive, colored zombie scene by The Walking Dead comic artist, Charlie Adlard. This alternative collector’s edition is only available through comic stores. Retailers can order via August Diamond PREVIEWS.

Robert Kirkman commented, “This magazine will be your one stop destination for all the news

pertaining to the comic, TV show, video game, toys, games, and whatever else exists in the ever-expanding Walking Dead universe!  If it’s happening, you’ll find out all about it right here!”

Nick Landau, Titan Publisher, added: “We’re very excited to be publishing the quarterly The Walking Dead Magazine with Robert Kirkman and Skybound, which will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for fans to get unlimited access to the show and comic.”

Fans of the show are urged to join The Walking Dead, The Official Magazine on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date with exclusive developments and deals. The magazine is currently offering fans a special pre-order subscription saving 20% off the newsstand cover price! – click here.
