This one is bigger (64 pages) and packs a helluva punch compared to the first issue. What’s not to love:
- Robert Hood’s exclusive one-one-one with zombie maestro George A. Romero. Two of the world’s best zombie braaaaiiinzzzzzz together, at last!
- Gary Kemble’s massive (and massively excellent!) feature on the zombie lurch and flash mob phenomena.
- and zombies, zombies, zombies!
- Jensen Ackles & Jared Padalecki give us the lowdown on hunting demons on Supernatural (plus a bit of Gilmore Girls and Days of Our Lives).
- Fiona Horne & Wendy Rule – two Aussie musos & witches kickin’ arse in their own ways.
- Guillermo Del Toro & Selma Blair talk Hellboy 2
- Jon Hewitt – director of the new Aussie film Acolytes
- Steven Kastrissios – director of the new Aussie film The Horseman
- Huge photo editorial of the Supanova and Gencon SF cons
- The dark art of the Neo Goth art show.
- Black’s guide to spotting sub-cultures.
- The Page Thirteen pinup of scream queen Bella Dee!
- and a bucketload more (including many new columns: Andrew McKiernan on urban legends, Robert Hood on giant beasties, plus photography, sex, and ummm…. heaps of other stuff)!
Of special note is my one-on-one with Paul Haines, where we shoot the breeze on paedophilia, fighting cancer, and his new book (more on that last one soon!).
There’s also new fiction from Paul (and a damn, damn fine story it is, too!) and Miranda Siemienowicz. Top notch stuff!
Black #2 is on sale next Monday at more than 1,000 newsagents, Borders stores, and a whole bunch of independents (now including Raven Clothing in Canberra). Or beat the queues and subscribe now!
You don’t have to be a horror nut to love this mag – it’s frickin’ awesome for anyone who likes to look on the dark side of life.
