I’d always thought Amiga Future would remain alone. Now we have two magazines?
Back in the 90s I used to read two, AUI and CU Amiga, so why not in the 2020s?

Only two? I read them all:

Amiga Format
Cu Amiga
AUI
Amiga Mart
Amiga Computing

As well as:

Edge
The One
C+VG (sporadically)

And probably many more I have forgotten. CU Amiga was my favourite...

I have bought a copy of Amiga Addict but still needs 400 more to be purchased before printing so may not see the light of day???

I could only buy so many when my income was £9/week from a paperound
I did read others when I could.

As of 12:00 GMT today there are 345 orders still needed according to the web page. Let's hope we get there!

Sadly that makes me a bit older than you as I had left paper delivery a few years earlier and had just started my teaching career. I miss reading the non-Amiga mags in Smiths though - not the same today...I suppose it was inevitable that computer magazines would dwindle in light of the rise of the Internet.

I'm in for 12 issues.

They only need 53 orders to make their total right at this moment.

For me subscription magazines started with Page 6 and Atari User (many thanks to you Les Ellingham!) for my Atari 800XL, then of course the mighty Amiga Format and CU Amiga through the 90's. I collected every single issue and for many years kept every cover CD - until when cash strapped early 90's I had to sell the whole lot :_( And whilst I do love the instant-news nature of the web, I also miss the arrival of a new mag each month.

Good luck to you guys!

The 500 threshold was reached! I'm very interested to see what the magazine is like, I ordered one a few weeks ago.
