ONE OF THE TOP HORROR 'ZINES on the stands today is the always erudite, always entertaining DIABOLIQUE. Each issue besides being filled filled to the coffin lid with good articles to read, is always reliable for presenting everything in a very appealing design with eye-popping, full-color graphics.

Here's the 4-1-1 from their hot-off-the-wire newsletter: 

"In the same way the intersection between horror and rock n’roll explored in our 15th issue is much like a Reese’s peanut butter cup, so are horror and comedy – two great tastes that go great together. In that spirit, Diabolique # 17 tickles your funny bone and cracks it too, exploring all that’s irreverent, wonky and weird from the horror community’s most alternately playful and sadistic minds. We’ll walk you through horror-comedy hybrids new and old, featuring exclusive interviews with Ben Wheatley, Adam Wingard, Joe Dante and more, while delving into the inner workings of extreme and erotic cinema with a tribute to the late, great exploitation helmer Jess Franco. Diabolique 17: you’re all gonna die laughing!" 

I am particularly looking forward to the horror comedy feature. I've always been a fan of the mix between fun and fear. When you get done reading this, click on over to my YOU'LL DIE LAUGHING blog show I can show you what I mean.
