I am fine with the change in format. I enjoy reading the magazine and always enjoy the content. The price difference doesn't bother me at all. I am interested to see the FAQ post that Todd mentioned above. My current subscription doesn't expire until 2020 and I bought a friend a gift subscription a few weeks ago as an Xmas present. The mentioned higher quality design, art, format will make it more likely I keep them, display them, put them on my bookshelf.
