We already spoke about The Milan Review when they released their very first issue of the magazine. Today sees the launch of the second issue of the magazine, called "The Milan Review of The Universe".

224 colour pages inside a dark blue cover, divided in 12 chapters, each named after a sign of the zodiac, each containing a short story and a portfolio by a different artist. The artists and the authors were paired arbitrarily by the editor Tim Small. This second issue collects several Roman collaborators among writers, Chiara Barzini and Francesco Pacifico, and artists, Massimiliano Bomba, Carola Bonfili and Francesco de Figueiredo. The other writers are: Iphgenia Baal, Amie Barrodale, Blake Butler, Matthias “Wolfboy” Connor, Seth Fried, Amelia Gray, Shane Jones, Robert Lopez, Clancy Martin, Lynne Tillman. The visual artists: Milano Chow, TJ Cowgill, Joe DeNardo, Roope Eronen, Frédéric Fleury, Christy Karacas, Taylor McKimens, Brenna Murphy, Toony Navok.

The presentation will be tonight at 7 pm at the NERO Headquarters, where you can find other books, beer and music, with special guest DJ Valerio Mattioli.
