Before we begin, I won't be showing all the issues in each run. It occurs to me they're just taking up space and if I don't have something to say about the issue, it's sort of silly to show the cover. We're going to speed through the rest of this series pretty quickly as I honestly have very little to say about the issues of the last ten years.
As the new millennium dawned, Fangoria was hitting the skids from a financial standpoint. While they had been quite successful in the first half of the 90's (as was their sister publication Starlog) with tons of spin offs and tie-ins, 2000 saw them under new management and in a rut. I stuck around for a while but to be honest, my thoughts this article will be somewhat sparse since from 2001 to mid-2004 I was not buying the magazine. I've filled in a good portion of this unconscionably large gap but in terms of text, this will be rather brief.
2004 was the year I finally got back on board the Fangoria Express. I had a job and money which allowed me the means to get back into business. I've been back in it ever since, but with every road, there are bumps.
