Creem magazine is back, the Detroit rock book that folded in 1989

Well boy! Karim magazine is back.

More than three decades after the demise of Detroit-born, wild, free-rock print, Karim is being resurrected with ambitious print and digital efforts — part of a broader plan to become a full-fledged entertainment company that could include concerts, podcasts, and even a TV show.

The reboot is led by the Detroit-born son of the original New York-based publisher Karim. It comes with a team of seasoned CEOs and editorial staff, along with a strategy to reconnect with Motor City magazine’s roots, including a planned Detroit office and annual music festival.

Quietly in the works for several years comes the relaunch of the critically acclaimed 2019 documentary Creem that has reignited interest in the brand.
