Going Rogue

There’s a new men’s magazine in town. From the guys who created Manifesto (Jose Mari Ugarte, Miguel Mari, and pals) under the C! group, Rogue is their new brainchild under a different publishing group. Here’s the Press Release and photo from Jim Ayson’s Philmusic:

ROGUE’s long-term mission is to accurately tell the story of our times, our people, and our culture one month at a time; and to capture the people, places, and ideas that define our modern culture. if anything, ROGUE will make a strong statement about who we are, what we do, and why we do it.

I wasn’t able to go to the grand launch at the Fort a few weeks back because I was sick. I’m sure it was a blast.

I used to love reading Manifesto as it was the closest we could get to a local version of GQ. Other magazines also came close, such as MANUAL when it was being handled by Adel Gabot a couple of years back – thus showing how an editor in chief is the true lifeblood of a magazine. MANUAL’s current EIC is RJ Ledesma, who bring a lot of his Men’s Room antics into the magazine. If Rogue is anything like Manifesto – and it should be – this is one good men’s title I’m looking forward to.

I have a piece in the upcoming issue of Rogue. Check the current issue in magazine stalls now.

Disclosure: I also contribute on occasion for MANUAL Magazine of MMPI.

When i heard it being advertised in NU107, i actually thought it would be something more rugged and catering more to the PULP or FHM market. instead, it actually reminds me of PREVIEW. weird…

I was hooked by the maiden issue and I was lucky enough to buy BOTH the August AND September issues of ROGUE yesterday at the magazine stand (I forget the name) on the food court level of Rockwell. Very good magazines – excellent photos and articles. Here’s a tip though – don’t buy two issues at once – I was up until 4am reading 🙂 A class of its own
