Unveiled: The Final Bumper Issue

This month sees the release of our last print issue! When I started this project in 2010 I had no idea what I was getting myself into (how difficult could it be to start a film magazine on top of a full time job, in a recession without any financial backing, right?) but editing this magazine is an experience that has taught me much. The most rewarding part of the project – besides watching the final product arrive in the hands of readers – has undoubtedly been meeting fabulous people along the way. There are far too many to name individually but if you have written for the magazine, drawn for the magazine, designed the magazine, promoted the magazine or in anyway mentored me in my times of crisis please understand that I am extremely grateful to know you.

Our final bumper issue is available for order today and will be sent to buyers and subscribers on Monday 29th June.  Unless you are already an international subscriber, I’m afraid this magazine is only available in the UK.

The front cover comprises of a collage of our past covers, all of which have been drawn by the supremely talented Dan Havardi (aside from our digital edition which was illustrated by Alfie Gallagher – thanks Alfie!). Dan’s* last illustration – inspired by the Giallo genre hints at the goodies within our final edition.

Inside you’ll find a special section on Giallo pictures, a section dedicated to cinematic rebels and myriad other film-inspired articles such as Whatever Happened to Fright Night? and Chaplin’s Box Office Bomb! All of these articles feature alongside our regular features including Adam Glasspool’s Why I Hate Film piece and The Empress Speaks column.

Thank you for five years of print fun! Order your copy of our last ever issue here.

A ‘buy one get one free offer is currently available on issues 1-4 whilst stocks last.

*the Giallo background texture was created by garryts- thank you!
