Inside, among a wealth of beautiful and eerie masks, you'll find articles on the future of 3D makeup, the new world of face filters, mask-wearing in the act of protest, and reclaiming power and identity through the use of drag makeup.
Issue #1 is an incredible snapshot of the world of character creation, containing some of our very favourite artists and illustrators - Jon Burgerman, Rila Alexander, Hel Covell, Marylou Faure, Dan Woodger, Guillaume Kashima, Aman Khanna and many, many more.
