The front cover of the magazine—full color, totally sleazy

We apologize for the lack of updates on this site over the last few months. We have a good excuse though—the Cream City
magazine is finally done and it looks great! The first batch was sort of a small test-run, so we currently have only 50 copies available for sale at $10 each (fear not, we plan to print more as soon as these run out). Our publisher, Hey Boy! Press,
will have several copies on-hand—in addition to lots of other sleazy and grotesque goodies like toys, comics, and stickers—at the Small Press Expo (SPX)
tomorrow and Sunday in Bethesda, MD, so be sure to check their table out! If you’re not going to SPX, send us an email at email@example.com
, and we’ll give you the ordering details.
The magazine is 5.5 x 8.5 and features a mix of color and black and white content. Inside you’ll find a review of Ladies’ Night at the Gentlemen’s Gold Club, a playlist of sexy music from Baltimore, Andre Novak’s infamous glory holes article, Baltimore Club Music madness, a short story about The Block, a tribute to The Apex Theater, lots of lewd photos, and much more! You don’t want to miss this. Buy it now, before we run out! And stay tuned for some completely unsavory updates on the site—there’s a lot of raunchy shit coming down the pike.
Special thanks to Mike Stearns and Hey Boy! Press for making this dream cum true!
Hell yeah, we’ve got stickers now too

So, Cream City’s good friend and resident artist, Haleigh Hey Boy!, is launching an independent publishing company called Hey Boy! Press. She’s an incredible writer and illustrator who’s been producing loads of weird and amazing small-press content in Baltimore for some years now. Her work is one of the absolute best parts of the city’s underground press scene—and that’s saying a lot in a town like this. Anyway, the plan for her company is to begin printing and distributing delicious underground material to make it more available and accessible to you and everyone you know. Sounds pretty rad, right?
And here’s some more really exciting news: one of the first projects slated for Hey Boy!’s launch is a magazine version of Cream City, Maryland! Fuck yah. Now, we hate asking people for money for any reason at all, but we are doing it for this project—not just because Cream City is tied up in it, but also because we believe in Haleigh’s vision.
If you’re like us and you want to support a serious effort to revive authentic independent, outlaw publishing, now is your chance. Below is a link to the Hey Boy! Press Kickstarter page—a donation of any kind would greatly appreciated. So much so, in fact, that Haleigh is giving away some awesome gratitude packages for donations of certain sizes. The packages include items like Haleigh’s zines, copies of the Cream City magazine, and anthropomorphic hotdog toys. Yeah. And if you don’t want to donate to support underground publishing or for the rewards, then at least do it for us—because if you don’t, we will do everything in our power to make the rest of your life miserable. Just kidding. But seriously, any and all donations—of any size—would be extremely appreciated! Thanks for your time and support, dear readers!
Oh, and please feel free to pass this link along to anyone who might be interested in this sort of thing. That would also be much appreciated!
