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.
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.
