Rue Morgue Magazine Issue 82 Sneak Peek

Goon

For the first time in a long time I have to honestly say I really have about 0 interest in this weeks cover story, Alice Cooper. I remember when he was the guest of honor at the Festival of Fear and it was the year I didn't go. I really don't understand the appeal that some horror fans have for him. Then again I guess if you really dig that type of music than, for a horror fan, he is probably right up their alley. Well check out cover and what will be inside below. Issue 82 will hit shelves on September 1st.
