The Face to make a comeback?

According to certain media sites Bauer media - owners of Grazia / Heat / More and the like - are set to bring back The Face five years after it unexpectedly closed. Apparently this is set to take the form of a digital only / freesheet or subscription only magazine headed up by former FHM Editor Anthony Noguera.

The Face shaped my youth, it was my favourite magazine throughout University and the loss of it left a massive, gaping hole in the fashion / lifestyle magazine territory.

Remember Justin Timberlake splayed out like Jesus on a crucifix? Or The Face hailing the advent of the New York scene (YYY's, Liars, The Strokes)

Let's hope if it does come back it will be as amazing as before and not an attempt to cash in on the name. I for one, will be closely watching any developments.
