Default Collecting Horror Magazines

I couldn't see a thread live for this, I collect Horror Magazines myself (as well as comics) as I love having something physical to hold - though the web is obviously the more efficient way of keeping tabs on current affairs.

Anyone else collect Horror Magazines, how do you organise them - would you use a binder / folder for them?

Should also add that I run Shock Horror Magazine here, so there is purpose in my randomness

I regularly collect enjoyable Euro publication Creepy Images and Is It....Uncut?. However, apart from these two contributions i tend to stick with various random reads.

Where the latter above Midnight Media effort is concerned i managed to buy a binder for the first set of issues but frustratingly missed out on the second variant the company manufactured.

Yours truly also picked up the initial two editions of the recent Scream magazine but i don't think i'm impressed anywhere near enough with this offering to invest in later issues.

I do wish The Dark Side would get itself in gear and make that much-anticipated return to our shelves. Come on, Brycie!

Don't know why the Dark Side is still so highly rated. The first 100 issues were fine if a little repetitive.

However in its last years it became stale, and bogged down in issues of plagiarism to put it mildly.

Its as if people just ignore this and just think of the mid nineties when the mag was at its peak.

Here is a site that may interest collectors of magazines.

This older gentleman runs this from his house in Wigtown,(Wicker Man territory) and has a PHENOMENAL amout of mags,books comics.

He has two or three outhouses on his land absolutely CRAMMED with goodies-and he preserves them all in those cellophane pockets.

Every year I go on holiday,I pay him a visit.

Last year I picked up;

SAMHAIN JUNE 1990 5
SAMHAIN OCT 1991 3.75
SAMHAIN AUG 91 3.25
SHOCK EXPRESS VOL 2 ISSUE 2 1987 3.75
SHOCK EXPRESS VOL 3 ISSUE 1 1989 3.75
SAMHAIN JAN 1992 3.75

HALLS OF HORROR ISSUE 27 1983???
HALLS OF HORROR ISSUE 26 1983???
HOUSE OF HAMMER ISSUE 14 1977!

The three above were a fiver each I'm sure....and I picked up umpteen SHIVERS I was missing,as well as a couple of EMPIRE specials.

A very helpful and friendly guy(Richard),here's his website.......

Will certainly be having a look Reaps!

I used to collect Fangoria but stopped at about #100.
I have every issue before that except #1!

Nowadays I don't really collect mags but nevertheless buy French mag Mad Movies each month.

Fangoria has become a top magazine again over the last 6 months.

It began when they changed editor.

I have almost all of The Darkside mag bar 12 issues! I have all of Is It Uncut? until issue 20 I think (I'm on a mission to get the second binder!).

Hey Bruno, I have issue 1 of Fangoria! Not a pristine copy but still a copy!
