With the rise of blogs (and blogspots like this), the web has become even more loaded with content. Sure, I used to have my own website, but this technology has made things so simple and easy that anyone...and I am amongst those anyones, can do it. But I do love to pull through my boxes of old fanzines-many contain articles and artwork that remains unavailable on the web. While there are a few magazines out there, the zine scene for horror has been by and large replaced in the casual readers market.
I was thrilled to see Latarnia.com owner, Mirek Lipinski, doing a print zine, and this one is a steal. It is a small four pager that brings back the look and feel of the best newsletters-and it covers the wild world of the Krimi film. If you don't know what that is, then all the better-because number 1 lets you know in no uncertain terms. A breed of thriller that pre-dates the popular Italian Giallo films, this is a genre ripe for rediscovery in the age of digital preservation. Issue one covers the often adapted Edgar Wallace and also includes a comprehensive review of Retromedia's Krimi double feature dvd from a ways back.
But it gets better...
