Special double cover issue! After spending the last several years stomping through the conventions of the superhero genre with The One, Brat Pack and Maximortal, cartoonist Rick Veitch has plunged into the equally frightening worlds of the subconscious and self-publishing. The king of King Hell Press sits down with the Journal for a career-spanning interview, including a detailed discussion of his latest work, particularly the dream diary Roarin' Rick's Rare Bit Fiends. And he provides a cover! The second cover subject is legendary hardcore artist S. Clay Wilson, interviewed / dissected / reviewed in a "you have to see it to believe it" feature article. The flip cover itself is a photo Wilson describes as "so grotesque it looks like one of my works." And don't forget the Journal's regular battery of news, analysis, reviews and letters!
