FANGORIA RISES FROM THE TOMB WITH ISSUE NO. 348


Currently available is an all-digital issue of the latest FANGORIA (#348), guest edited by Fan-boy eternal, Kevin Smith. If this marks the "all new" direction of the magazine, I am underwhelmed.

"To some, he’s an independent film auteur, a contemporary among the likes of Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, and Steven Soderbergh. To others, he’s a gonzo horror filmmaker, producing bold and original visions of viscera that play with tone and content unlike any storyteller working in the genre today. And to many more, he’s one of the forefathers of fandom, who has used speaking tours, comic books, podcasts, and the internet to help bring geek culture to the mainstream in a major way.

Yet to FANGORIA, Kevin Smith is our second-ever Guest Editor, a curator and contributor to our latest issue, FANGORIA #348.
