The Sequence Issue (Issue 23)

$25

The Sequence Issue is an unintentionally-ironic collection of missteps, triumphs and candor – stories from whom we assumed have it made proving that they too, often didn’t have things figured out.

Verdy, the leading man of Girls Don’t Cry and who designed an exclusive cover for us this issue, currently finds himself at the forefront of a label gaining traction at an exponential rate, yet his first product from Girls Don’t Cry wasn’t made for sale. Andrew Richardson tells us about his youth and the story behind Richardson Magazine’s beginnings in the late 90s, a risqué publication even within the context of today. We speak to Shane Gonzales about his label Midnight Studios and how he’s keeping punk alive and kicking.
