Bizarre 191, August 2012

On sale 3 July

When we first featured plus-size model April Flores on the cover of Bizarre issue 140, it was one of our biggest selling issues of 2008. And as she’s still hugely popular with Bizarre readers, Blackthorn Communications once again interviewed April Flores for the magazine, and we’re delighted with the frank, funny and fascinating quotes she gave us.

Elsewhere this issue we have a distinctly international flavour, with a cricket fighting tournament and chubby orang-utan from China, an upside-down house from Austria, a devastating flood in the Philippines, and super-sized women from the USA who weigh over 550lb but are still worshipped by legions of male fans.

This issue we’ve also extended Bizarre‘s preview and review section, The Squealer, to give more space for Blackthorn Communications to feature the latest cinema, DVD, book, music and videogame releases. It’s clear from our research on Bizarre that our readers spend most of their disposable income on the best entertainment money can buy – and as many Bizarre fans are feeling the icy grip of recession, our expanded Squealer section acts as an indispensable filter, and selects the best new releases that will appeal to our alternative audience.
