The New Smith
I was very happy to get my hands on a copy of the new Smith Journal, from the makers of Frankie magazine. It seems that everyone wants to know why the new magazine isn't named 'Frank', seeing as it's a more masculine version of Frankie - this is what editor-at-large Rick Bannister had to say about that:
"…even though Smith Journal was created by the Frankie team, it’s not simply a male version of it. It’s not the brother of Frankie. It’s different. It’s more like Frankie‘s guy friend. A guy who’s interested in a lot of different stuff to Frankie. (Smith Journal and Frankie would definitely want to hook up though, I reckon, so they had to be from different families, otherwise that would have been weird and wrong)"
