Mustard has come a long way since that first black
and white magazine, printed on the office photocopier.
Growing in size and quality each issue, it generated a
bit of a buzz and we even snagged interviews with some
of our heroes, like Michael Palin and Alan Moore.
After the Alan Moore issue featured in The IT Crowd,
I decided to launch Mustard "properly" - full colour and
available in the shops, with a 10,000 print run and a
new big name interviewee every issue. We had a pretty
great run until the recession took our advertising as
well as our stockists (RIP Borders).
But now, through the magic of pixels, Mustard is back!
Think of these digital editions as our special edition box
set, with no ads, expanded articles, bonus extras and
updated interviews. All this, and only 36 calories!
Please enjoy responsibly,
Mustard is written in front of a live studio audience
