DIABOLIQUE is fast becoming two heads and shoulders above the rest when it comes to horror and monster film magazines. I was super impressed right off the bat (no pun intended) with its extraordinary design and art direction. The writing is by and large excellent as well.
DIABOLIQUE has earned the MONSTER MAGAZINE WORLD spotlight banner under the main title. After staying awhile here, please visit their site. It's as good-looking as their magazine.
