Request Magazine

From September 2002 to June 2003 I was an active freelance contributor for the now defunct bi-monthly periodical Request Magazine, an entertainment magazine in the vein of Entertainment Weekly that was once a part of the Musicland Corporation's Replay Rewards program. My freelance work for this entertainment magazine consisted of writing concise anime reviews ranging anywhere from 100 words to 300 words for products coming out one to three months in advance.

The start of 2003 saw the anime review's section expand even further and I was allowed the opportunity to head up the magazine's first column devoted to Japanese manga. My "Speed Lines" column spotlighted upcoming manga news and releases in a form that gave both familiar with the content and those totally new to the concept a place to find out about the series and titles that would be worth checking out.

In late June 2003, the magazine was cancelled due to a company wide restructuring and the content that I had submitted for the unpublished September/October 2003 issue never saw print.

Below you will find links to large jpeg scans of the pages that my articles appeared on.
