Fangoria's Editior Ken Hanley Says the Magazine is Likely Finished

Fangoria is a something very special I personally grew up with, and it was the only magazine that I thought was worthy spending money on back in those days. I can remember building a nice collection of issues, each magazine had some of the most visually pleasing covers, featuring iconic monsters and villains such as Freddy Krueger, Michael Myes, Jason Voorhees, Pumpkinhead, Chucky, Leatherface, and so many more.

Over the years, Fangoria has experienced some real rough times. The final issue that actually hit shelves was on October 2015, and only a small amount of digital issues have been released online since then. I can’t honestly remember the last time I saw a copy of the iconic magazine in a store, can you?

Well, we have some very sad news to report today. Former Fangoria editor Ken Hanley revealed this heartbreaking post on his Twitter account:

Been waiting a long time to say it, but I can finally say: I am no longer involved with FANGORIA. I’ve been on hiatus from the company in mid-December. I’ll always be grateful for the time and opportunity there, so it’s a fucking bummer. For those wondering: there will likely never be another issue of FANGORIA, especially in print, unless there’s new ownership. As for the odds of that happening, there’s a minuscule chance as something was (is?) in the cards, but I’ve personally given up hope.

Hanley added:

I wish for the best for those remaining at FANGO, for however long that may be, especially the Musick team.

Dark Universe send our very best wishes to the entire Fangoria team. If the magazine is done for good, it will forever be remembered as the greatest horror magazine that ever existed.
