Don't know all these people but there are certainly many familiar names. Looks like a very talented line up. Am so looking forward to seeing the first issue with MR's touch. Should be a very exciting new venue!!

Looks like a good line up. I am always following Mitchell Owens. He is one of my favorites.

Let's hope they put together a great glossy.

So excited. Howard Christian in particular is one of my favorite people in the universe and will bring so much style and razor-sharp wit to this fusty mag.
