    New & Improved Star Wars Insider

    Who's gotten theirs..and what do you think. I kinda liked IDG's treatment better. I get several other mags like 24 & Lost occassionally, also published by Titan. Seems like too much splashy pinups & ads. I hope SW doesn't follow suit.

    I haven't yet. My subscription was supposed to run out in May/June (this issue), but did you have to re-subscribe for this new one?

    Due to crappy customer service, I let my subscription go a couple years ago. I plan on getting the new one from a book seller next week to see if it's any better.

    Is it new and improved so that it doesn't suck anymore?
    That's my jacket!

    Can something really be new AND improved? It's either one of the other....

    Somewhere, somehow I had read that it was coming out on newstands next week, but I found it today. It really looks like it used to, but then I haven't seen it for a couple years. The info is interesting so far (about 20 pages read), especially the Indy 4 stuff. I don't think I'll be resuming my subsrciption.

    I forgot to add, but this came in the mail the same day I posted in this thread the first time . . . weird . . .

    With the last publisher, I often had the feeling that they had no idea what the hell they were doing (though it still had some great moments). This new issue is already a lot better, to me, and I love the article on the 50 things you didn't know about ANH. It just seems more "polished" than before and had some better content (though this of course changes every time).

    Not necessarily. If, say, The Pittsburgh Steelers released all of the current players and replaced them with NEW players but still retained the name, "The Pittsburgh Steelers," then the Pittsburgh Steelers would be new and improved. Well, new anyway. We'd have to see them play a few games to find out about the improved part.
