The Last of Us, Goncharov, Self-care, and The Bachelor
Our January 2023 issue marks the official launch of our new fandom zine. We're covering new stuff, beloved stuff, and perspectives on fandom creativity and wellness.
Welcome to Remarkist Magazine—now also known as rmrk*st. This is a complete rebrand of what we’ve been doing here, so we view this as our first issue. We’re thrilled about this new chapter and glad you’re here for it. The second half of 2022 was spent testing a lot of what you’ll see in the coming months, and there are even more exciting changes in store.
The magazine will cover trending fandom topics and deep dives into popular Remarkist shows. We’ll examine new releases, share the ins and outs of our project and ecosystem, and discuss the evolution of the creator economy as it applies to fan platforms like ours. Our subscribers get between four and eight of these kinds of articles emailed to them monthly.
It’s free to subscribe. It’s cool to subscribe.
On the first of every month, we’ll reveal a new magazine cover in a post like this–a visual for one of our features that month. It will stay pinned on the magazine's front page all month long (and represented in the headers of emailed articles). Our covers will tease four feature articles slated for that month. We’ll keep the details of each blocked out until the day of its publication (listed just below its blocked-out text).
rmrk.st will also showcase perspectives from our community in the form of what we’re calling Memento Insights. Mementos are limited-edition digital collectibles that community members build and distribute inside our app. They celebrate Remarkist events hosted around popular story franchises. Memento Insights are Mementos that use their text description as micro-journalism—formal fan commentary. We publish them on rmrk*st throughout the month and send a round-up to subscribers at the month’s end.
You can also think of these first-of-the-month posts like the table of contents in a traditional magazine. As with the reveals of our four feature articles on the cover, we’ll update this post throughout January as we release content, adding quick links to each. Until the content is published, we’ll just give you its topic, author, and publish date.
Here’s what we’ve got for January 2023:
Not a Remarkist member? Here’s how to get started:
Step 1: Join our project as an early adopter and grab your unique @membername. Install our app from one of the links here, and be one of the earliest to collect our KRNL token while earning rates are high. KRNL fuels Remarkist’s fandom economy of events and collectibles.
Step 2: Join our Remarkist Clubhouse Club—Clubhouse is a separate mobile app on iPhone and Android that we use right now to meet and watch content together. You’ll need it to join some of our real-time events that we aren’t hosting in our own app yet, and you’ll need to be a member of our club there to see those chat rooms.
Step 3: Join our Discord Server—this is where hundreds of Remarkists are geeking out over the shows we love 24 hours a day, and it’s where you can get the latest developments on the project. When you join, head over to our #general-chat and say hello. Our members are friendly and eager to collaborate!
