Got to love Spain

Posted: August 20, 2017 in General, Magazines

This is a good cover. Spanish publication Primera Línea (September 2017).

This shot was published on the Babymetal platforms today. Here you see them posing with Foo Fighters and by the looks of it they presented their new friends with a bag of Fox masks. Babymetal and Foo Fighters shared the same stage in Osaka today and they will hit Tokyo tomorrow, as they co headline the Summer Sonic Festivals on the biggest stages this year.

Short Babymetal clip of the Osaka show here.

Epic Condor cover

I do not have access to French publication Le Fana De L´Aviation but if I had I would certainly have bought them on a regular basis. They always come up with great looking covers. This art is obviously top notch.

The Chap 93

Posted: August 18, 2017 in General, Magazines, TV & Movies

This looks like a good read. UK publication The Chap (issue) 93. Sir Roger Moore on the cover. This magazine is distributed in the US now as well, just so that you know.

The GG (Guy Gene) approves.

Well I mentioned Sweden Rock Magazine (issue) 8 2017 the other day but here is the full blown cover, and I think it is one of the best that they have ever had. Very nice Ronnie James Dio cover.

Top notch.

Author Scott Palmer has published a few books about cinematic history and “The Films of Alistair MacLean” (Cypress Hills Press, 2016) deals with a pretty interesting subject. 17 of MacLeans books were turned into movies and some of these are still well known (“Where Eagles Dare”, “The Guns of Navarone” etc). This book deals with the storylines and you get plenty of pictures. I would have gone for more facts about the films as well but it is still a fine effort. Hardback, 180 pages.

Mastermind of Dunkirk

This looks like a good read. US publication MHQ The Quarterly Journal (Fall 2017). This ties in nicely to the movie, and everybody has seen that by now.
