I had to give Big Up Magazine kind of a qualified, wishy-washy recommendation because I hadn't yet seen the physical product. It knew it was almost certainly good, but I couldn't risk misleading you in good conscience. You are my bros! Even those readers who are women.

However! I have since held the magazine in my hands and can give it a hearty thumbs up.

I said last time I really liked the art, and that's still true. The interviews with the artists are equally as good.

The print quality makes it pop, too. As someone who's priced some printing over the years, I was impressed. It's a nice, perfect-bound, glossy color print run. Four issues for $25 with shipping, and an included CD, is a damn good deal.

In fact, I like it enough to get a subscription as a gift for one of the people on my list.
