Gygax Magazine?

I don't often go to ENWorld but I came across this story today. It seems someone working with the Gygax family has obtained the rights to the TSR name and is going to produce a gaming magazine in December. Before ENWorld checked into things this sign-up page was the only teaser for this project. I'll be keeping an eye on this, as always, with the slim hope that maybe some nostalgic remnants of Greyhawk might come to light. Otherwise, if this magazine is for real, more power to them. It is a daunting thing to run a magazine, heck even the highly regarded, award winning Kobold Quarterly folded its magazine days ago. I can't wait to see where this goes.
 
(update: Here is a link from the comment section to R. J. Thompson's Gamers & Grognards blog. He has posted a prospectus from Tim Kask as to what the magazine will be like. Check it out.)

Seems legit enough. He's posted over on En World about it. As long as the magazine's not a "house organ" I'm in

Old IP is new again!
It'd be nice to see a source reprint some of Gygax's old scrolls.

Nachtwulf: Ditto on the indy magazine love.

Gefyl: A mix of old and new is what they promise.

RJ: Thanks a ton for that link. Comics! That's all they had to say to get me.
