Valentines, AI Mashups, Rewatch Podcasts, and Black History
The February 2023 issue is a love letter to fandom. 💌

January was a big month for us here at rmrk*st, and everyone loves a “previously on…” so let’s recap, shall we? First up, we began to incorporate community content, which we are over-the-moon excited about. January 2023 saw the first few drops of our brand new Remarkist Insights series. Each month, we are curating Memento content from the Remarkist Community, showcasing members’ creative art and writing about the content they love and are sharing inside the app. If you missed them, be sure to find all of January’s Memento Insights in our monthly roundup right here! Stay tuned for more in February—and do consider submitting your own for consideration!
New year, new shows! In January, we dove right into some epic content on the app and in our Magazine as it dropped in real time. Arguably the biggest television/streaming premiere in January 2023 was The Last of Us, and Remarkists got right into it with weekly watch parties and discussions. We featured predictions and video game/set pieces comparisons from the show and all around geeked out about this series. We are watching as the episodes drop, so it’s the perfect time to join our The Last of Us 🧟 events!
Other content we got excited about: In honor of the 27th season dropping January 23, we took a look at how to watch The Bachelor. 🌹 We examined the centuries-old tradition of community myth-making 📜 in our look-back at the Goncharov phenomenon of late 2022. And we reinvented the idea of “New Year’s Resolution” by examining the role of self-care in fandom.
In February, look for a celebration of Black History Month with our special brand of fandom spin. We are really excited to share a Memento Insight highlighting our Black History Month content in the app, and an editorial featuring some incredible creators.
And finally, if you’re not hanging with us on social media, you’re missing out! Find exclusive fannish content on our Instagram feed and tumblr! Tag us in your fandom artwork and we might feature you on our IG stories for our weekly Fan Art Fridays! 🎨
Here’s our Table of Contents for the month ahead. We’ll update this post throughout February as we publish content, adding quick links to each. Until the content is published, we’ll just give you its topic, author, and publish date.
