Bizarre 196, Christmas 2012

On sale 20 November

Our world-exclusive interview with surrealist legend HR Giger caused quite a stir with Bizarre readers last month, so we’€™re delighted to print the second instalment of our audience with the master of darkness in our Christmas issue. It took three years of gentle negotiations to arrange this interview, and we’€™re honoured that Giger took the time to give Blackthorn Communications enough material for two issues of Bizarre.

Also in Bizarre 196 we send one of writers undercover to sample the dubious delights of a secret spanking club, take an in-depth look at the new graphic novel Deadbeats from writers Chris Lackey and Chad Fifer, and talk to our slinky cover model, Ruby True, about zombies, beards and rock’€™n’€™roll.

As always, this month’s Bizarre features dozens of high-quality contributions from readers of the magazine, including photos of their tattoos and body art, examples of their deviant artwork, and scorching-hot photos from the most exciting new models. Using Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and any other resources we can get our hands on, Blackthorn Communications has established a wonderful rapport with the readers of Bizarre, and we’re proud to showcase the finest contributions in the magazine.
