Oh Comely Issue 45
|Publisher Names||by Pirates Ahoy!|
Have you ever woken up from a dream so vivid you’re convinced it’s real? This issue has been inspired by dreams, both the ones that happen while we sleep and the ones we control – our aspirations for the future. Activist Nimco Ali is campaigning for a world that respects the rights of young girls. Performer Soma Ghosh wants us to shed our feminist guilt and embrace our sexuality, as she investigates whether porn can ever, really, be feminist. And Alex Merry conjures up surreal, magical creatures from her kitchen table. Elsewhere, we spend a day chilling in our PJs, Charly Cox writes us a poem for the changing seasons and Mahalia sings us some sassy-sweet soul. Come join us.
oh comely is a curious, honest and playful independent magazine. It’s a place to meet strangers, hear their stories and look at life a little differently – where our readers are our writers and our models, too.
Each issue we pick a theme and see where it takes us. We try something old, something new and something that scares us a bit. Then we present our findings in a beautiful, artbook style, putting new writing, photography and illustration talent at the heart of it.
We believe good things come in threes. We began as the bedroom project of three pals at university and we’re now produced by a small publishing house started by another set of three friends.
You can find us all over the world in small newsagents, indie mag shops and cafes. Or hop over to our shop, where you can get hold of the latest editions, ‘surprise me!’ packages and never-miss-an-issue subscriptions.
We are bi-monthly, made in London.
