nice to see SHOESTRING on the cover. At the time of that show, Trevor Eve was also starring alongside Larry Olivier in DRACULA ( 79 ), one of my favourite movies.Which leads me rather neatly into a lovely item I just picked up - LITTLE SHOPPE OF HORRORS - an entire mag devoted to the frank langella version of Dracula, an amazing issue packed with rare photos. I was doubly delighted to find this as I've never seen the title in FP before.I was also surprised and pleased to find issue 1 of BINGEBOX. It seems to be good value with a nice poster of THE FLASH.
The London FP seems to have scaled back on their magazine offering lately. Or their stock controller forgets to order stuff. BINGEBOX is interesting. I wonder if it is the future of TV magazines in a non-linear age or whether it will quickly vanish. I guess it is the latest iteration of the home video and DVD mags of the past. The new issue of PREVIEWS has some interesting new bits and bobbins for first-quarter 2017 including a Marvel reprint of the CLASSIC STAR WARS newspaper strip reprints.
I'm having issues with the Dublin branch of FP right now.The new issue of PREVIEWS was a week late and then they told me that all copies had been pre-ordered which sounds like a load of cobblers. Its a miracle if I find anything on the shelves.I'm not sure if I would compare BINGEBOX with those older mags. They were really big titles with lots of freebies. At first glance , BB looks like just another telly rag but it is nice and lets hope it stays the course.
