    That's actually not a bad deal if you feel confident in the future of print media.

    If it included digital copies of all past issues, I'd consider it.

    Man, I haven't looked/read a Fango in 10+ years.

    Sounds like Fangoria should be belly up before the end of next year.

    $400? :lol: Yeah right... you'd have to really love the 'zine to waste that kind of money and expect a return years later. It would be far safer to just continue with yearly subscriptions.

    I love paper magazines, but many are sadly starting to go the way of the dinosaurs.

    My last subscription was only $33.00. To be fair though I've subscribed to the magazine since 1981 so a deal like this would have paid off long ago.

    As someone who has worked in the literary business, the future of all print magazines is seriously grim.
    Pity as I still like perusing issues of Fangoria, Rue Morgue and Horrorhound once in awhile.

    The last Fangoria I bought was in 2006. The one with Slither on the cover.

    I used to love them as a kid but they cost too much these days for me to give a damn.

    That's a huge problem which discourages me from buying more.

    No kidding! I picked up the "Giant Size Halloween Special" issue with Roger Corman on the cover and the price had gone up to $10.99! And that issue was no bigger than any other Fangoria issue - it actually felt thinner than most (lower quality paper stock?) If that's the regular new price then that lifetime special offer would pay off even sooner than expected. :eek:

    When did Fangoria's price get so high anyway? Rue Morgue used to be the most expensive but I assumed that was because it was "imported" from Canada. HorrorHound is a veritable bargain at $6.99 an issue.

    This weekend, former EIC of horror magazine Fangoria Ken W Hanley tweeted:

    Comics website Bleeding Cool reached out to him to clarify:

    Not surprising at all. Ever since Chris Alexander's reign as editor, the magazine became a total piece of crap. Even for about a year before his entrance, the magazine was crap. I used to be a subscriber, but when my subs ended with issue 303, I finally stopped and had enough. I hated the direction of the magazine anyway.

    Famous Monsters also just went under after it's revival about 5 years ago.

    There is only one print magazine that I buy and that's Horrorhound. It's only bi-monthly (wise) and is only $6.99 per issue instead of $12 or $13. Every bi monthly issue is jammed packed with new about movies, toys, comics, and retrospectives. A pretty decent mag.

    Rue Morgue is basically the Canadian version of Fangoria and is crap.

    Used to love Fangoria, back in the 80:s and early 90:s.
    But around 95-96, the content just got worse and worse, and I probably bought my last magazine in 97.
    It was around that time, that I sold my entire collection.
    Wish I had kept some of the ones from the 80:s though.

    I kinda doubt that the content got any better, during the 20 years I missed?

    Horror Hound is awesome!! It's not over kill (really, there is no need for a magazine per month, so the bi-monthly release is ideal) and the price is awesome. I quit buying a lot of magazines when they started to be $10+. $6.99 is great for what you get in HH and I HIGHLY recommend the magazine to all.
