47 New Titles Arrive On The Nation’s Newsstands In The Last Six Months (April – September 2021)…

Black Cannabis magazine and 46 other new titles arrived to the nation’s newsstands during the months of April to September of 2021. The new magazines covered every conceivable subject from the indoors to the outdoors and beyond. In a climate that is filled with uncertainty, the new titles continue to pump new blood in a magazine media market that has seen so many changes in the last few years.

From Bauer’s Drew magazine to AIM’s Finding Home, there is no shortage of new ideas to reach customers searching for curated and edited content. From Kindling to Mother Tongue, from In Pickleball to PawPrint, and from the $95 a copy (and worth every penny) Curious magazine from the newly established Curious Society, to the latest addition in bicycling magazines BETA… you name the subject and rest assured you are going to find a title or two (well make that three or four) that addresses that subject matter in a very engaging, entertaining, and authentic way like no other mass media can ever do.

So, here are the titles that yours truly was able to find in the last six months, some are brand new, some just made their arrival to the newsstands, and some arrived from overseas to our shores.

Keep in mind that in my book magazines are much more than content providers, they are experience makers.

So, take a look at the new experience makers below and please remember, if Mr. Magazine™ can’t physically hold, touch and purchase the magazine, it does not enter the monthly counts. And counts now include only the titles with a regular frequency that are either new, first-seen on Mr. Magazine’s™ radar, or arriving to the national newsstands for the first time. 

34 NEW TITLES FOR JANUARY, FEBRUARY & MARCH 2021!

Whether you want to take a Royals Rue or you want to Justsmile and be Seen, or take a Men’s Adventure or be an Adventure Rider with or without a Crankshaft, there is always room for Delish and there is a new magazine with all the aforementioned names that appeared on the nation’s newsstands in the first quarter of 2021. Indeed there were 34 new titles that were launched or relaunched in those first three months, and this number is more than half of the total number of 60 magazines that launched in 2020.
 
Boys’ Life; published since 1911, changed its name to Scout Life to pave the way for a gender-free community of scouts. And it’s a new name and a new look for AAA members as the print edition of its member publication is now known as AAA Explorer, giving the title a fresh look and a fresh new moniker. 
 
And if you remember the men’s adventure magazines of the 1950s, you’ll definitely want to order the first issue of Men’s Adventure Quarterly, a new print-on-demand magazine (when you order it, they send it) that features many of the exciting adventure stories born in the 1950s and 1960s. It’s a retro feeling old fans will love and new fans will quickly cultivate.
 
A successful digital-first brand from Hearst that has seen immeasurable growth with not only its website, but its printed bookazines and cookbooks, Delish.com is launching a quarterly print magazine. Delish in print will be sold at the newsstands, but will also be an integral part of the subscription model the brand has in place for its online footprint. Issue 1 features some delectable ideas for breakfast + brunch.
 
And with the world infatuated with the Royal family more so today than ever before, PEOPLE brings us a new quarterly magazine simply called Royals. It’s sure to satisfy the most enthusiastic of Royal lovers.
 
And there are a lot of global magazines that are reaching newsstands in America. Magazines created and appreciated in our neighboring countries across the pond that are now showing up here for us to enjoy, such as Konfekt.  A sharp, elegant and well-turned-out new magazine from the creators of Monocle. It’s a quarterly publication covering fashion, travel, design, drinking, dining and culture in both English and German. And so is Orlando, not the city, but an international Italian magazine with Queen Elizabeth II gracing the cover of its first edition, and Simply Scandi setting the stage for a welcoming spring.
 
On the home front, Justsmile magazine is an independent cultural publication at the cross-section of fine art, fashion, ideas, self-expression, and inclusivity, according to its website. Mr. Magazine™ thinks it’s a sharp-looking new title that can be used as a tool for expressing ideas and dialogues. Created for everyone, Justsmile aims to shine a light on honest examples of inclusivity and diversity, providing a collaborative platform for Black and people of color voices to explore their work.

60 New Magazines During The Year Of The Pandemic + 10 Specially Selected New Titles For Dollar Tree Only… The Mr. Magazine™ Launch Monitor

Even in the middle of a pandemic and with most of the retail stores closed, including bookstores and smaller shops, still some daring individuals and major publishers ventured with new magazine launches and introduced new titles or had new ones reaching newsstands during these trying times.

From legacy publishers like Meredith and Dennis Publishing to the brave entrepreneurs who dared to make their dreams come true, to a magazine like Marvin from a man who brought his own print experiences back to life, to the rebirth of Playgirl to the publication of Sweet July to Beach Happy to Drew and Jonathan Scott’s Reveal, 60 new magazines were born during a pandemic, including a weekly, yes you read that right,  aimed at kids The Week Junior,  proving once again that print is something people wanted and yes, this year, needed in their lives. 

Another great happening for magazines during the pandemic is Athlon reached a deal with the Dollar Tree chain to introduce selected titles at $1 in all of its stores. The titles sit prominently in their own stand. There are at least 10 of them in the Mr. Magazine™ End of Year review, in addition to a special issue of Remind magazine.

The following titles were born, or reborn in the case of some, from January 2020 until the end of December 2020, and are brought to you in complete awe and recognition of the work and creativity that many of the designers, editors, writers and magazine makers brought to you from the confines of their own homes. It was a daring feat to continue creating such quality magazines.

And now without further ado is your year in review, your 2020 miracle magazines that will entertain, educate and inform you in the best and the worst of times.  And keep in mind, the titles below are for those titles with a frequency and don’t include the hundreds of bookazines that arrived to the marketplace.

DOLLAR TREE TITLES

 

January & February Welcomes 15 New Titles…

We celebrated a New Year and a New decade in January and now February has come and gone and we have 15 wonderful new titles to also celebrate!

Easyriders has been around since 1970 and documents the stories of riders, their machines, and the places they take us. In celebration of its 50th anniversary, the newly, relaunched magazine is expanding the brand to include exclusive product collaborations and new insider events. The magazine (now printed in a larger size and with more editorial pages), has changed from monthly to quarterly, but will excite and tantalize the bike lover even more with all those extra editorial pages! Remember the tagline? It’s more than a magazine, it’s a lifestyle!

Founder and Editor in Chief, Chris Walsh, describes Fifty Grande as a biannual that explores the U.S. and does good along the way. The first issue features seasoned writers and new ones alike exploring the main theme of hometowns. This new magazine’s mission is to inspire more people to take advantage of all the incredible places and experiences across the country, connect with its communities and do good along the way. This is a magazine for the fun and adventurous—those who aspire to a life well-lived and see traveling, open-mindedness and new experiences central to that pursuit. Welcome to the world of magazines, Fifty Grande!

 

From Meredith another successful partnership seems to have been born! The largest and leading media and marketing company, reaching 185 million American consumers every month and nearly 90 percent of U.S. millennial women—and globally recognized lifestyle tastemakers Drew and Jonathan Scott have joined forces to create a new quarterly magazine called Reveal. With its tagline —”It all starts at home”— Reveal will share the twin brothers’ “dream big” philosophy on life, and will infuse ideas and storytelling that inspire personal growth and happiness into every issue with home at the core. Welcome to the fold, Reveal!

Until next time…

See you at the newsstands!!

November & December Brought Us 24 New Titles To Our Bountiful Magazine Plates…

As we all gathered around our Thanksgiving tables and our holiday meals, Mr. Magazine™ hopes everyone had a fantastic and blessed holiday time. As far as magazines go, it was certainly a copious season for our print family as we approach 2020 and a brand new decade of the 21th century.

American Media produced two new titles during these holiday months: Your Week! and The Royals. Your Week! is a weekly title that features the latest fashion news, expert advice, celebrity interviews, along with games and puzzles, and is a really welcomed addition to newsstands with its mass appeal.

The Royals is a monthly title that brings us information about Royals all over the world, not just Harry, Meghan and Harry’s grandmother. The life of privilege and wealth has never been more popular and Mr. Magazine™ says welcome to both new titles.

And the green world of cannabis is still “growing” strong like weed (pun intended) as two new titles were born: Cannabliss (by far the best name yet for a cannabis magazine) and Hemp Grower.

Cannabliss is from Centennial Media and Associate Publisher, Scott Sciaacca, writes: Our flagship title Cannabliss is the first nationally syndicated newsstand publication that celebrates, and focuses on, the exciting connections between health, wellness and cannabis! Welcome to the marketplace Cannabliss!

Hemp Grower is a new title that focuses on the hemp grower,  to support legal hemp cultivators by providing actionable intelligence in all aspects of the business—from regulatory news to analysis of industry trends and business strategy, as well as expert advice on cultivation, extraction, marketing, financial topics, legal issues and more. It is a very interesting and different look at another side of the industry: the legal hemp trade. Mr. Magazine™ is thrilled to welcome both new magazines to the newsstands.

And please enjoy the covers of all 24 of our new magazines. They’re as beautiful and diverse as those of us who enjoy.

Until next month…a New Year and a new crop of titles await us…

See you at the newsstands…

The Autumn season is upon us and Old Man Winter isn’t far behind, but be of good cheer, the world of magazines is providing you with some wonderful new magazines, jam-packed with information and entertainment for those Autumn evenings spent curled up in front of the fire.

For those planning an Italian Thanksgiving or just a fantastic meal for dinner one evening, I’m sure you will enjoy Condé Nast’s latest launch of La Cucina Italiana as a quarterly print magazine and website. Its arrival on our shores brings a good addition to the food magazines in the marketplace and brings a smile to a lot of fans of the culinary legend.

This beautiful magazine from Schumacher’s, the manufacturer and supplier that designs products for the  interior design industry, has hit newsstands for the first time. As an in-house title, The Bulletin, was published and sent as a trade magazine for the interior design industry, but now people across the country can buy this great title. Schumacher’s should be proud of its efforts, the magazine showcases the beauty of what they do in a most excellent way!

The Spectator, one of the world’s oldest, continuously published magazines (since 1828), had its first U.S. edition hit newsstands recently after starting a U.S. digital presence last year. The British bulwark is a weekly which  features politics, culture, and current affairs. With its unique brand of journalism, this great title is a breath of fresh air to the political scene and Mr. Magazine™ welcomes you to our shores!

15 New Titles Hit Newsstands For July & August 2019…

It’s been a long, hot summer, sizzling with sunshine and great new magazines! So, if you were looking for dynamic reading material for your days beside the pool, July and August were definitely the months for it!

In the fall of 2018, a brand new print magazine was created called The Technoskeptic. At that point founder and publisher, Mo Lotman, said the magazine was not sold through Barnes and Noble or any national distributor. Mr. Magazine™ found Issue #3 (the first he’d seen on newsstands) and was certainly glad he did. The magazine’s mission statement is: The mission of The Technoskeptic is to promote awareness, critical thinking, and social change around the use and impact of technology on society and the environment. The magazine is savvy, very well-done, and totally absorbing. Welcome to The Technoskeptic!

A fashion and pop-culture magazine, Cool America strives to offer diverse and beautiful content that will bring people from all walks of life together. Editor in chief, Vaughn Eric Stewart, writes in his first editor’s letter: an inclusive America is a cool America. And the premiere edition of the magazine is certainly cool! Thank you for your beauty in both photography and content, Cool America; we welcome you to the fold!

As a way to refresh their ‘Worklife’ brand, Staples has launched a quarterly ink on paper magazine, along with a digital version, podcasts, live events, and a entire digital community, hoping to continue the conversation with its customers long after the ‘staples’ have been replenished. The premiere issue of Worklife includes an interview with author, Daniel Pink, talking about motivational mistakes and how to correct them; there is advice for the workplace and all that entails, from stress to keeping the peace;  and The Decider, which is a flowchart tool that, in the premiere issue, helps readers decide whether a particular meeting is a must-attend. It’s a great addition to the brand and Mr. Magazine™ is keeping this one in the office with him!

Well, autumn is right around the corner and Mr. Magazine™ is looking forward to meeting you again right here to discuss the great new titles for fall!

So, until then…

See you at the newsstands…

The First Six Months Of 2019 Gave Us 77 New Titles…

Continuing the normal trend of one year up – one year down, the first six months of 2019 show a slight decrease in new magazine titles. We have 77 new magazines for the first half of 2019 versus 105 titles for the first half of 2018. So, the year has begun with a deficit of 28 titles in comparison to last year. However, negativity does not belong on our radar when it comes to print, just the facts. And the slight decrease in the numbers reflects only those facts, no predictions. Because of course if Mr. Magazine™ is looking into his crystal ball, the future of print looks bright indeed. Always has, always will.

And while the numbers may be a bit short in comparison to last year, the creativity and innovation certainly wasn’t lacking. June 2019 gave us a new title that could fit into a cassette player, that is, if it wasn’t ink on paper. Day + Night is an intriguing look at the city of New York in the daytime on “Side A” and then flip the cassette-sized magazine over and on “Side B” you can visit New York at night. The minds of magazine makers are amazing! Welcome Day + Night!

PRINT IS DEAD. LONG LIVE PRINT.

This statement is on the RQ website. This new Philly-born title is one part magazine, one part collaborative art project, and one part social experiment. Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Heather Shayne Blakeslee says that this new magazine offers you insightful and provocative essays, profiles of local makers and artists, cultural criticism, fiction, poetry, and carefully-curated recommendations for getting the most out of life in Philadelphia—including a cocktail or dinner recipe here and there—all in a beautifully designed and printed magazine you can hold in your hands and settle down with on a Sunday afternoon, or argue over at Thursday night happy hour. And Mr. Magazine™ is thrilled to welcome RQ to the fold.

So, as we gear up for another long, hot summer, get ready for a Jumping July as the new titles are already lining up at the newsstands. But until then, please enjoy our beautiful June covers.

And as always, Mr. Magazine™ will see you at the newsstands…

April & May Brought Us 20 New Titles…

April & May continue the magazine excitement as 20 new titles are born on the nation’s newsstands.It’s been a wonderful Spring for the world of ink on paper! Check out the titles below…

From the Outdoor Sportsman Group, one of the largest media companies solely devoted to bringing the best in content and entertainment to America’s 80-million+ outdoor sports enthusiasts, comes a new title called Backcountry Hunter. The magazine focuses more on the adventure of hunting, rather than a set of impressive antlers. Backcountry Hunter covers all aspects of wilderness hunting in the western U.S., Alaska and Canada, with a particular emphasis on DIY adventures for the hardcore sportsman. While Mr. Magazine™ himself may not be an avid hunter, I am an avid magazine lover and this one is amazing!

The latest digital brand to expand into ink on paper, Bumble, the dating app, now has its own lifestyle magazine produced in partnership with Hearst Magazines titled Bumble Mag. The dating app has really grown into a social platform and may have felt the need to present a more tangible way for the digital site’s users to engage with the brand, but whatever the reason behind the print extension, Mr. Magazine™ says welcome to yet another cyberspace resident who has seen the light and realized the value of ink on paper!

A niche magazine delivering articles and photographs related to sports history, this new title, Sports History Magazine, focuses on the history of sports, not today’s live streaming or the graphic replays of gridiron heroes in real time, but an actual ink on paper magazine that captures the essence of some of the best (and worst) times in the history of sports. Founder and Editor in Chief, Gill Schor, is the entrepreneur whose own passion for sports history motivated him to fill a void in this very niche market. In fact, Mr. Magazine™ interviewed Gill in early May and we talked about this great new magazine. Check out the conversation here.

The long, hot summer awaits us and rest assured there will be a great collection of new titles to both fan the flames of the season and cool us off! But until then…

I’ll see you at the newsstands…

And now our great covers for April & May:

March Brings Us 19 New Titles To Newsstands…

Springtime is upon us! And it gives us a wonderful feeling! So does the 19 new magazine titles that hit March’s newsstands! From a fantastic new financial publication called Luckbox, that was developed by Modern Trader’s Jeff Joseph (FYI: Click here to read the Mr. Magazine™ interview with Jeff Joseph), which is a sharply designed, extremely smart new publication that quantifies the probabilities of investments and makes the “what ifs” and the “might happens” not so scary.

Entrepreneur and Shark Tank star Lori Greiner teams up with AMG/Parade to launch a new lifestyle magazine, Living Inspired. The 100-page glossy premiere edition will feature inspiration, advice and insight on topics such as style, savvy shopping, money and investing, giving back, work/life balance, food and entertaining, health and beauty, travel and more. It’s another TV/magazine partnership that has the potential to strike gold among fans and readers. 

The Unseasonal is an alternative take on the fashion industry and the art world. And as Mr. Magazine™ has always loved an entrepreneurial approach to bringing passion to life, this beautiful title is a special projects magazine that is an amazing pictorial that features fashion, art, travel and much, much more. Welcome to the family!

Pick up any of these fantastic new titles and enjoy! And we’ll see you for an awesome April!
