I got an email asking to verify my address, etc. This was like a month ago. They said it’ll drop in October, so I don’t think there’s much news until then. Once they’re established and interacting with the fans again I was going to ask about the digital issues.tv horror wrote: Has there been any recent news about the magazines return from the dead.
I had to place a special order with my newsagent after I heard you could get it in the U.K, before that I was quite happy with the U.S subscription.G Vallejo wrote: That is a shame. I know I buy a few things from the UK now and then and shipping can be either normal or outrageous. Much as I like Fango I’d probably balk at $25 an issue.
I remember when my family moved to the UK in late 1988. We got a list of forbidden things we couldn’t take into the country, and Fangoria was one of them. I don’t know what this list was. My dad was in the Air Force, so maybe it was a military thing. I had to leave my collection at my grandparents’ house. For years! Then when I get to the UK I see them in comics shops and at the base Stars & Stripes. (I think... I know for sure I saw issues at British comics stores but I can’t remember for sure if the base carried them as well.) I never understood that. I ended up with hardly any issues from my UK years and had to get them years later.
Who were the other Dr Cyclops?TomWeaver999 wrote: Good grief, there was a terrific turnout for the FANGO relaunch -- a long line out in the drizzle on Broadway, brought into the store five at a time, and it was an hour and a half or more before things settled down a bit. It was nice that the original publisher Norm Jacobs showed up, (a) because it was good to see him again, and (b) because until he showed up, I was the oldest one there. It occurred to me that Tony Timpone and I were working for FANGO before a lot of people in the line were born. (Aaaaarrrrgggghhhh!!) Also there were a bunch of indie filmmakers who must have followings, because a lot of customers were agape at seeing them. Lloyd (Troma) Kaufman, a bundle of energy, showed up, an actor named Brian O'Halloran was signing, Greg Nicotero swung by to say hello -- it was "a happening." To give myself elbow room, I sat at the end of the table, but this meant that by the time I was handed a copy of the new FANGO to sign, everybody else had signed it and there was no room left on the cover. I signed a lot of 'em "Dr. Cyclops" just for fun. (I WAS one of FANGO's Dr. Cyclopses for about 20 years -- I must have written 600 reviews or more. Most of them negative!)
Aaaanyway, it was a lot of fun, IMHO.
