How exactly does a magazine end up with a $30 cover price?


This isn’t the CREEM your hesher uncle got at the grocery store for $1.99 in 1977. Inflation is real, but so is the new-and-improved quality and collectibility. Our small team of editors and contributors work tirelessly to pack over 50,000 words into a quarterly book. It’s hard. It’s time consuming. It’s expensive. And it’s totally worth it.
