'Magazine for City Boys'

For June 2024, this is the ever-popular Popeye's take on a car-shaped celebration. Featuring another typically gorgeous illustrated cover (it's been a while!), inside it's automobiles galore, from classics like the Pontiac Le Mans Sport and DeLorean to everyday reliables VW Golf, Honda City et al. Split into amusingly titled sections—‘Car Movies that Impressed Kiyoshi Kurosawa’; ‘I Wish I Had a Garage Like These!’; ‘Today is a Day to Look for a Nice Car’—it's, as expected, not your typical auto magazine. 


According to the editors:
Popeye magazine is the “Magazine for City Boys”. The founders printed this on the cover of the magazine when it debuted in 1976. What’s a “city boy”? The term doesn’t appear in the dictionary and no expert panel could define it. So we felt we should explore every aspect of what this “city boy” might be. After decades of debate, it still makes for a topic of lively discussion. It can be a style or a way of thinking. To get an idea of what makes a city boy, read Popeye magazine.’
