BY THE GODS! magazine issue 2…

I’m currently working on issue #2 of BY THE GODS! magazine. I wanted the issue to be available before Christmas but for now, it’s unlikely for a couple of reasons, the main one being shipping. It takes at least 2 weeks for Magcloud to print and ship the magazine and with the massive Christmas rush of packages being shipped in time before December 24, the magazines will be caught in the jam and will most likely be late. So, issue #2 should be available on the first or second week of January.

Here’s a sneak preview of the cover. There might be some last minute changes to it but that’s what I’m working on for the time being.

I like the gold and red look but I really like the black and red look of the first issue. Anyway, I have so time to figure it out.

In the meantime, for those who didn’t buy the first issue, you can purchase it at Magcloud with the link below. 20% discount with the code: HOLIDAYS20. Valid until December 11.

BY THE GODS magazine issue 2 + new upcoming projects…

I’m currently working on issue 2 of BY THE GODS! magazine. I don’t know when it will be available. Hopefully before Christmas. If not, then early January. I’m pleased with the response of the first issue and it warrants a continuation. I don’t have any images to share yet (it’s too early…) but it will be spectacular.

With that being said, I’m also working on a couple of other projects. I’ve completed a novel and I’m still in the finishing process. The other project will be a visual feast. I’ve uploaded an image (below) but the image doesn’t really have to do with it but, well, yes it’s directly like the image.

Stay tuned!

BY THE GODS magazine…digital?

Thank you to everyone who purchased the magazine! I’m happy with the results. Hopefully, more people will purchase it.

It’s cool to have a magazine dedicated solely to the PEPLUM genre. I’m currently working on issue 2. For now, issue 1 is only available to purchase in print form. I was thinking of making a digital version available as well but once a digital copy makes the rounds, no one will buy it and simply get the dupe.

My question is: would you buy a digital copy of BY THE GODS! ?

You can purchase the first edition at the link below.

Got the completed edition of BY THE GODS! magazine…

Last week, I received the final version of the first BY THE GODS! magazine edition, with barcode and all. I examined it and it’s all fine.

I hope followers of the blog have purchased it. It’s cool to have a magazine dedicated exclusively to the PEPLUM genre.

You can purchase it at MagCloud or click the link below.

BY THE GODS! magazine…

You can get the new BY THE GODS! magazine at MagCloud.

Go to this link: https://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/2574706

A few things about this:

For now, subscriptions are not available. MagCloud doesn’t offer subscriptions. So the best way to know if there’s a new issue available is to visit this blog or PEPLUM TV on a regular basis.

You can preview the contents of the magazine but personally I would suggest not to. As to keep the element of surprise.

Shipping and handling: MagCloud are the ones who decide how much it will cost to ship to your address.

There’s currently a discount going on until Oct. 8. It’s 15% off the regular price. The code is OCT15. I don’t know if you need to have an account at MagCloud for the discount to work but personally I would create an account regardless as they’ll send emails with discounts that range from 10% to 25%.

Digital copies, or PDFs,  will become available in the future, once a good number of editions have been published.

MagCloud is not affiliated with online sellers such as Amazon, which is a bummer. Eventually, I would like the magazine to be available at Amazon but for now the only place you can purchase it is at MagCloud.

You can also donate via the donate button above right, to support the continuation of the blog and this new project.

Enjoy!

SIGN OF THE GLADIATOR in English on DVD…

SIGN OF THE GLADIATOR (1959), or SIGN OF ROME, is available in English on this German DVD. The only legit DVD release in English of that movie. It’s heavily cut (over 10 minutes of scenes cut…) but it’s in English. The intro credits are in Italian. Not the English intro credits of the US release with SIGN OF THE GLADIATOR, which is a shame. Anyway, for those looking out for an English copy of this movie starring Anita Ekberg (below), this DVD is it.

I already had this version, which had even more cuts. It was broadcast in the UK via MOVIES 4 MEN. The Italian intro credits was removed and SIGN OF THE GLADIATOR title was added to it which faded to black and went straight to the movie. Aside from this, it’s the same print as the German DVD.

BY THE GODS! magazine…

The long delayed BY THE GODS! magazine was completed a few weeks ago and I got the first published edition. I examined the printed magazine, which is cool, to see if there were corrections to be made. Here’s a small preview.

Cover of the magazine.

Inside the magazine.

I found a couple of minor errors in the magazine and I’ve corrected them. I’m waiting for a few things to sort out. Once everything is done, the magazine will be available, hopefully in September. The magazine is a print on demand type. There will be a printed version and a digital version. I’m sorting out everything before it goes live.

Anyway, more on this in the near future!

Coming soon: BY THE GODS! magazine

This blog was created in anticipation of a magazine I had been planning for a while but the unexpected events of the last 2 years or so delayed everything. The first edition of BY THE GODS! is completed and I’ve used an online service that publishes magazines on demand. It will soon be available. I’m just making sure everything is right.

More on this in the near future.

New SLAVE QUEEN OF BABYLON German Blu-ray…

A German release of SLAVE QUEEN OF BABYLON is now available. You can choose your store of choice but they have it at Amazon.de

I like this film and I already have a HD copy of it but I wonder how good the new release is. The movie was already available on Blu-ray but the quality was disappointing. Hopefully this new release the transfer is better. Unfortunately, no English track including. Only Italian and German.

There are two different covers to choose from.

The cover above is an amalgamation of poster art taken from SAPPHO THE VENUS OF LESBOS (the fighting men with Kerwin Mathews) and JOURNEY BENEATH THE DESERT aka ANTINEA – L’AMANTE DELLA CITTA.
