2009, what a year: Phantasm turns 30, and so does the magazine that’s traced the franchise for a very long time. So what better way to illustrate that multi-decade association than enlisting the creator and “anti-hero”? Don Coscarelli & Angus Scrimm, as Fango Hall Of Famers, have each written a delightful piece. Scrimm schools you on the classics of horror’s past, while Coscarelli reminisces about the now-treasured Fango #2. Both extend a congratulatory hand to the premiere modern horror rag. Fangoria’s 30th Anniversary issue (#284) is above worth the semi-gloss paper it’s printed on, and is on sale now!

Note - this issue contains a few easter egg references to Don Coscarelli! Catch ‘em all!
