Another great looking issue is coming our way courtesy of Rue Morgue. I have been singing their praises since I first picked up the halloween issue last year and this mag keeps getting better and better. This issue is no different. They plan on going head to head with one of my favorite Japanese directors Takashi Miike. Here is some of the other articles that are being featured in Issue 48.
