That’s right, gang…we’ve started blowing the dust off of classic RM mags and are pleased as spiked punch to announce the release of the first digital back issue ‒ last year’s sold-out Special Edition “Black 100” – absolutely FREE! Starting tomorrow (Tuesday, March 15), we’re making this milestone issue available at no charge for PC and Mac desktops through the Yudu digital newsstand ( and as an app for iPad, iPhone, and iTouch.

We’ve diligently dug up more than 100 instances of bonus click-through content (including embedded movie trailers, video Q&As, streaming audio and music videos) so you can go “beyond the page” exploring even more about horror’s greatest living legend, Sir Christopher Lee, and Hammer studios; zoom in on the incredible Nightmare Gallery featuring original artwork by the likes of Chet Zar, Kris Kuksi, Travis Louie, William Basso, Jason D’Aquino, Jason Edmiston and many more; listen to Rue Morgue Radio’s first-ever free downloadable terror tunes compilation, Hymns From the House of Horror; watch R.L. Stine talk more about his creepy books for children; and expose your hungry, bloodshot eyeballs to the monstrous amount of terrifying trimmings we’ve crammed into the epic horror tome that is our Black 100!

Sign up to access the electronic edition of your favourite horror mag before it hits newsstands for the introductory price of only $6.99 US/CAN per issue or $49.99 for a one-year (11 issue) subscription!

  4. Jakob Benjamenta says:

    that’s exactly the issue i had in mind when i asked the question

    just waiting for that android app

  6. Hope says:

    So we can’t actually download it and keep the copy? Just look at it for free?

  7. Trevor says:

    Well, not exactly. You’re able download it to your iPhone, iPad or iTouch once you download the free Rue Morgue app to your device. The desktop version for PC and Mac works a little differently through the Yudu digital newsstands, but essentially you still download it. It’s yours to keep, love your friends at Rue Morgue!

  8. Hope says:

    Thank you for answering my question!

  9. Owen says:

    Any news on a digital version for android?

  10. It’s in the works. Our digital newsstand Yudu, who host the issues, have relayed that they’re hoping to have their system Android-compatible before the end of the year but we don’t quite know what that might mean on our end production-wise. We’ll keep ya posted though. We would love to have the Rue Morgue app available to as many platforms as possible.
