posted on by Egan Loo
Future US, the California-based publisher of Nintendo Power, Guitar World, Maximum PC, and other gaming and lifestyle magazines, is publishing a one-off magazine called Future Anime this month. Gary Steinman, the former editor-in-chief of A.D. Vision's Newtype USA magazine and the current executive editor of Future's PlayStation: The Official Magazine, helmed this Summer 2008 issue. The issue costs US$9.99 and will stay on newsstands until October 21. It features a Gurren Lagann cover, 12 posters, and no DVD. According to Steinman, the publisher has the option of turning the publication into a recurring special or a full magazine launch. The staff will "gauge the audience interest and go from there."
