The theme of issue 919 is “Bookworms Delight”. An adventure through books.

Autumn means relaxing and reading. The next issue will be about books that we found interesting recently. No genre required. From literary to photography books, magazines, art books, little press, and zines...we’ll be introducing exciting books to our omnivorous side. We also talk about visiting domestic and international publishers and editorial departments, and talking about our favorite bookstores. People say that reading is like traveling, and for those of you who want to enjoy books as if they were an adventure.

Popeye magazine is the “Magazine for City Boys”. The founders printed this on the cover of the magazine when it debuted in 1976. What’s a “city boy”? The term doesn’t appear in the dictionary and no expert panel could define it. So we felt we should explore every aspect of what this “city boy” might be. After decades of debate, it still makes for a topic of lively discussion. It can be a style or a way of thinking. To get an idea of what makes a city boy, read Popeye magazine.
