Marquis Magazine website will formally go live on Tuesday January 31, 2017, at the same time as Marquis Issue 65 is officially released, The Fetishistas can exclusively report.
And he tells us he’s pleased to announce the relaunch after “much hard work and dedication” from his production team.
“Understanding that today’s audience demands an extensive online presence,” he says, “we at Marquis have taken the time necessary to deliver an all-new product that will be second to none.”
“The culmination of that work will have reached a point where visitors can start enjoying the new site on January 31.”
The digital world of Marquis Magazine will deliver an all-new variety of interactive elements, creating “a new level of interest” for everyone to enjoy.
From internet mainstays such as online shops and member zones, Mike Martell and his team have made a “conscious effort to expand this world” with the Marquis website launch.
“Even still,” Mike explains, “we have a lot more work to do on several other elements that will be added in time.
“Our blog will eventually take on its own social media feel with a bit more coding and addition of a dedicated mobile app coming later this year.
“All previous available issues of Marquis Magazine will eventually be available online through the creation of a new e-reader.
“So, while we are launching very soon, the new and exciting additions will keep coming throughout the year and beyond.”
In addition to the Marquis website launch, the physical magazine will see no less than six issues published in 2017, starting with Peter Czernich’s Ninja Girl Issue 65 (left) which is officially released on the same date the new site goes live.
Following on from No 65, Marquis Issue 66 will introduce an all-new format in a “one time super-large issue” running to 196 pages.
This issue will include everything from the previous format as well as a number of changes that will be seen in the magazine from then on. (You might even discover some Fetishistas-originated content in it!)
Issues 67 to 71 will be released on a bi-monthly schedule “ensuring proper delivery to any new subscribers”.
Finally, fans of the old Marquis might like to know that Peter and Mike seem to have patched up their differences.
The two were working together on final details of the launch at the Marquis US HQ as this exclusive Fetishistas report was being readied for publication!
