Yeah, I think they're doing things backwards, or rather, wrong. They're charging that much because it's all going to charity, and I'm sure a sub. will be about that much when they get that set up. They should have done the charity thing after they were more established.

I did some looking up and the US Copyright Office has no record of anyone on file owning a copyright or trademark to "Nintendo Force".

I have a strong hunch that this magazine isn't "owned" by any corporation or publishing entity, but is strictly created, magazine by magazine, through this HP Print-On-Demand service. This would explain why there are no ads and why it's so expensive-

Because you're basically getting a paperback custom printed book every time you order. Unlike batch printed corporate-owned magazines, print on demand publishing is just that- they *only* print a copy when you order it.

I'm all for charity (most definatly) but it's still alot, especially if i'd want every issue going forward (which i do). with the low subscription prices ($14.99-$19.95) of the former Nintendo Power, Game Informer (Gamestop) and @Gamer (Best Buy... which i'm currently subbed to digitally) it's really hard to justify paying that much per issue, even if it's 100% Nintendo related. ugh :(.

See my post above. POD publishing is far more expensive than corporate-backed batch magazines. You're basically getting a paperback book when you order. This would also be why digital is so much cheaper- no printing costs.

It'll be subscription based eventually. I guess you can send an email to them and get on the future sub list. Check the facebook page.

In the meantime, this is a blip of an interesting thing about Pokedex...hope it's readable.
