This is the final installment of the series for now. 2010 saw the end of Tony Timpone's 24 year reign as editor, replaced by Chris Alexander a few months into the year. The magazine had slowly but surely improved. I'll take a brief look and then wrap things up.
The first two issues of 2010 were less than promising as they had essentially the same cover only with a different monster.
Last year brought essentially more of the same but with a greater focus on quality.
This year so far has given us three issues, though I can sort of see one or two possible issues. There isn't a hell of a lot coming out right now and I'm not sure there's much retrospective stuff that hasn't been covered.
The latest issue is somewhat disappointing but not horrendously so. While the genre may stagnate, I feel confident that Fangoria will keep on striving to be as good as humanly possible. That's what it started out as and was for a very long time. It may not ever be as it once was, but it can still be damn good. It's an icon of the genre.
I'll go back to the magazine again at some point, probably the best of the issues I missed or something like that. Until then, this was a fun, exhausting series to do.
