Bizarre 201, May 2013

On sale 16 April

Back in 2011, Bizarre ran its phenomenally popular ‘Search For A Cover Star’€™ competition, to find new modelling talent for the world’€™s most popular alternative culture magazine. And this month, Maja Stina (above, left) –€“ one of our regular readers, and runner-up in the 2011 contest –€“ has finally made it onto the cover of her favourite magazine, in the company of one of our most popular cover stars, Mosh. Way to go, Maja!

Elsewhere this issue we’€™ve got a stunning photo story from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where our photographer immersed himself in the secret world of underground wrestling, where fighters mix voodoo magic with extravagant grappling moves that make WWE brawlers look like sissies. We also showcase some horrific 19th century Japanese art that’€™s sure to make your hair curl, interview cult film director John Borowski, and catch up with one of the world’s most renowned fetish fashion photographers, Peter Czernich. Another classic issue!
