DecayMag is coming right of out the gates of hell like a demon on a mission, with both high-quality aesthetics and essential stories and reviews. We predict that this publication will sprint into the fore of the horror/genre entertainment space in short order.
The Bronx-based horror entertainment news website and podcast platform, DecayMag (not Decay Magazine), announced its entry into the publishing sector with the release of its first digital issue. The debut release features fifty-six pages with a focus on cinema, video games and electro-industrial music. Two exclusive interviews include; Actor, Voice Over Actor Gunner Wright, and Dawn Of Ashes Frontman Kristof Bathory.
DecayMag’s expansion into the publishing sector does not follow the traditional bridge between the content and the reader. Instead of physical copies, DecayMag looks to strengthen distribution across territories and demographics with attention to mobile technology and smartphones strategies. Each DecayMag digital issue emulates the look of a conventional genre publication. DecayMag centers mobile device distribution and includes Android, iOS, Kindle and any device with an internet connection. Unlike standard publications, readers are engaged with Hyperlinks, an interactive layout, embedded media and also the option to print and/or download PDF.
Everyone uses a mobile device for news and entertainment. Offering our publication digitally is a dynamic strategy to use the technology at hand, pun intended. Delivering the interactive hallmarks of online content in a digital publication fosters a connection between the content, content creator and the target audience. — Ken Artuz, Founder of DecayMag.
Future issues we will add more features on Horror media, the music industry, in particular, Industrial, EBM and Witch House genres, book and exclusive interviews.
And the digital publication aims to also have an altruistic center, with DecayMag claiming to reserve a percentage of sales for every dozen issues sold, with proceeds donated to a non-for-profit community-based organization during each quarterly release. And LATIN HORROR agrees that business and community-minded support don’t have to be mutually exclusive.
We are thrilled to present our first digital issue, our venture in digital publishing. Furthermore, it is an honor to help our community through our new endeavor.
A single DecayMag digital edition issue is $5, and a yearly subscription only sets you back $20, with DecayMag currently floating a promotional offer of $15 for a year subscription that ends April 1st, 2019. You can place your order (or receive a ten-page sample) via this URL.
