'Magazine for City Boys'

For this issue, Popeye ポパイ heads to the movies. With a fantastic cover dedicated to Wes Anderson's latest, Asteroid City, film recommendations, a film 'fortune-teller' (apparently, it's all in Japanese isn't it) and a 'special appendix movie map poster' pull-out.

'今日観る映画が決まらないという君へ。/ For those of you who can't decide which movie to watch today.'

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.’

Sorry, not enough stock!
