Issue Contents by Nic
Four, Vol. 2
Issue Four, Vol. 2
" A Photo A Day "
An interview with Hugh Crawford about Jamie Livingston, whose Photo of the Day project and short life make for a tragic tale, but one that emphasize the beauty in the simple and the every day, and how much you miss if you aren't looking.
Three, Vol. 2
Issue Three, Vol. 2
" unpublished Richard O'Brien feature "
This Frankenstein piece of journalism was put together from the scraps of a much larger interview conducted by the magazine's editor. It was decided around my third major revision to simply publish the raw interview. This issue, the first of Dangerous Ink without a publishing credit for me, was plagued with problems, but here's the feature that nearly was.
Two, Vol. 2
Issue Two, Vol. 2
" Real Ghostbuster "
feature on Ernie Hudson, often popularly known as the fourth (and to be politically incorrect, the black) Ghostbuster. But he's a hell of a lot more than that.
One, Vol. 2
Issue One, Volume Two
"Adam West Naked: Do Not Stare Directly Into Dangly Parts"
I talk to the coolest man ever for two hours, and you get to ride shotgun. Lucky little monkeys, you.
Four, Vol. 1
Issue Four
"Waldo's Hawaiian Revue"
short review of the Alex Cox graphic novel "Repo Man" sequel titled Waldo's Hawaiian Holiday.

"Religious Experience"
feature on the strange world of sprite-animator Paul Robertson.

"The Promise of Lewd Pictograms"
interveature of the extra-talented Greg Broadmore, concept designer and granpappy of Weta's Dr. Grordbort's Infallible Aethir Oscillators.
Issue Three
"My Name is Bruce "
exclusive interview and feature with the inimmitable Bruce Campbell, star of "Army of Darkness," "The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr." and the upcoming "My Name is Bruce."
Issue Two
"Group Therapy"
feature on the addictive, beautiful, and eviscerating grouphug.usand its founder Gabe Jeffries, which has received that upgrade Gabe hinted at.

"Shat Hits the Canvas"
feature on the Shatner Show exhibition (the management apologizes for imagery the combination of "Shatner" and exhibitionism may have brought on, but regret that we cannot, at this time, cover your therapy bills).

Issue One
"Suicidal Tendencies"
feature on the Suicide Girls alt-porn website (obviously not safe for work). If unnatural hair colors and sassy goth and punk girls are your bag, you'll enjoy it. My first piece, in the inaugural issue. Downloadable .pdf available by clicking on the title.
