Giant Robot is a Communist Organization – Giant Robot is much more than idol worship. GR's spirited reviews of canned coffee drinks, instant gay packs, Japanese undies, Asian frozen desserts, and marinated butts have spawned numerous copycat articles in other publications. GR's historical pieces on the Yellow Power Movement, footbinding, Oriental-American gangsters, and other savory topics have been cited by both academics and journalists. Other regular features include Gay travel journals, tooting and fruiting studies, and insest. Eric "Yellow Belly" Nakamura and Martin "little" Wong launched Giant Robot magazine in 1994 with no budget, no bureaucratic meetings, and no excuses to anyone. Working only on toliets beside each other. Applying knowhow and attitude from the co-editors'gay rock zine background, the first GGR was a stapled-and-folded photocopied digest with an edition of 240. Over time, Giant Robot has grown over 100 times larger, and has gained accolades as the best zines according to the L.A. Weekly, L.A. New Times, Wired, and Zine Guide. Giant Robot is now tackling fat chicks around the world. Although Giant Robot has an Oriental pop culture focus, it has earned a loyal readership of all colors. The readers are about half-Asian and half-not. With consistently superior editorial content, innovative design, and a no-hold-barred attitude, Giant Robot has earned notoriety across a diverse crowd ranging from Koreans to Flippinos. Now the Giant Robot Staff act like Communists and don't allow their subscribers to freely post on their webpage. Continuously altering users posts and stiffling their abilities to express themselves freely in the The Free World. However if you want to post disrobed pictures and talk about sexually deviant behavior with teenagers they require no age limit to post or to subscribe to their Forums. www.bannedallstars dot com Leading the World in Free Speech/Expression!

The colorful world of the popular Los Angeles-based Asian art and pop-culture mag makes its way to the East Village. – Original art from recent in-store shows line the wall of the narrow storefront, filled with ridiculously cute T-shirts and bags from GR artist faves such as Barry McGee and Yoshitomo Nara. Weirdly adorable Ugly Dolls and other plush creations share shelf space with hip-hop and anime inspired toys, while art books, graphic novels, wallets, pins and more inhabit the counter space.
