AWESOME-tober-fest 2014: Fangoria #56 – Stephen King’s Maximum Overdrive (1986)

Let’s start off this week, the fourth week of AWESOME-tober-fest, with one of my favorite Fangoria covers of all time, issue #56, featuring the Green Goblin truck from Stephen King’s Maximum Overdrive.  This issue was on the newsstands in 1986.

Fangoria 56

Inside this magazine is an interview with King. Plus, they run a contest featuring the awkwardly named The Fango Maximum Overdrive Stephen King Scream Test.  The goal was to answer 15 Stephen King book/movie specific questions for lots of cool prizes.  I read through these questions.  Without resorting to Google, they are actually pretty hard.  Several of them can be gleaned from the previous interview, but some of them are really tough questions.  Take a gander for yourself.

  1. Jesus, I’ve read practically everything King has written, and seen most of his films and I could barely answer 3 of those! It’s like asking a Star Wars nut who the original actor was inside the Stormtrooper whose call number was TK242 (one of the ones Luke and Han beat up and steal the armor of during the Deathstar scenes)…

    • I know, right?! I’ve read most of the man’s bibliography and I had a really tough time answering those questions. And this was nearly a decade BEFORE you could just Google it. Bananas.
