Bizarre 212, March 2014

On sale 18 February

After 15 years, one Bizarre cover model still sends our readers into paroxysms of joy – so we’re delighted to welcome back the Canadian queen of fetish, Bianca Beauchamp.

Bianca and her photographer partner, Martin Perrault, have been friends with the Blackthorn Communications team for over a decade, and we’re delighted to feature their work on the cover of Bizarre once again. And as Bianca has provided us with a stunning ‘cosplay’ shoot where she takes on the roles of Lara Croft, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn and other fictional heroes and villains, we think this is one of the most exciting Bizarre cover shoots in years.

Bizarre 212 also features a fascinating historical feature on the life and times of Johnny Eck – the famous ‘half man’ who starred in Tod Browning’s classic movie, Freaks – a brand new interview with metal gods Cradle Of Filth, and an inspiring feature on the Conserving project by German artists Daniel and Geo Fuchs that captures ethereal images of pickled animals in anatomy museums.
