Louis Tomlinson is the first cover star for Dork’s October 2022 edition

The issue drops next week (Friday 9th September).

He’s been a bonafide star in one of the biggest bands on the planet, a primetime TV judge, an indie acolyte and a budding festival boss – amongst a whole load of other things. Now, Louis Tomlinson can add Dork cover star to his long list of achievements.

We know, it’s, without a doubt, the greatest of the lot.

The first of this month’s cover variants – out next Friday, 9th September – you’ll find an exclusive in-depth interview and photoshoot with Louis as he kicks off a new era for his second album, ‘Faith in the Future’. If you pick up Louis’ cover edition, you’ll get extra, exclusive photos in an expanded cover feature, too.

You can pre-order the Louis Tomlinson edition of Dork right now here, or subscribe and get the print edition sent directly to your door every month here. We’ll be revealing the other cover stars, and the full issue line-up, next week. Due to Royal Mail strikes at the end of next week, orders will ship from the week commencing Monday, 12th September.

If you like what we do, we’re making available a section of the site for those who wish to support us by signing up to a new monthly or annual subscription package. Different from our previous print-only subscriptions, the Dork Supporters scheme allows you to get early access to all our print content in digital form as soon as the issue launches, read digital versions of every single edition of Dork right back to issue 1, and get occasional exclusive extras too. You can sign up for digital-only or digital + print packages, which will give you immediate access. You can find more information here.

And don’t worry if you’re not signing up. You’ll still get everything you did before, as digital versions of our print content unlock to be read free of charge throughout the month. Enjoy!
