A look at their site reveals entries for a Western filem and a Western game (yo-ge, kuso-ge), but none for anime and manga. Another PiQ?

Has anyone read it? How does it prepare to Neo mag?

Just got it today (haven't had the chance to go to a WH Smiths till today) and thus far it's okay. It has a touch more western content in it, like a review for an upcoming Marvel's Punisher comic and other things.

It's got a lower page count than NEO, and the binding is cheaper (it's staple bound, not perfect bound). But thematically it seems similar. It has some of the same freelancers working for it and it's main advertisers seem to be the same.

...I have heard some, shall we say, interesting behind the scenes stuff between the two.

Well, the biggest elephant in the room is that MyM's publisher, Tarik Alozdi, used to work for Neo publisher Uncooked Media and I understand things are less than amicable.

Hmm. Sounds like yet another MangaMax. Better get whilst stocks last. Wink

I thought it sounds more like PiQ lol.

Best mag was Anime Insider, shame that went and it was supposed to be selling rather well at the time it died too.
