Ladies, it’s time for some news! Good news and bad news if you will: First of all, this is the brand new issue of Destroyer. The 10th issue! It’s so fresh the paint hasn’t dried yet. In fact, it hasn’t even been applied – as I write this the printing plant’s metal plates are still being engraved. Cyan, magenta, yellow and black plates are filled with the usual Destroyer ingredients: Photos, essays, reviews, interviews – and a couple of surprises! […] So what’s the bad news? Well, as you have probably figured out from the title of this post, or the words on the cover, this is the last issue of Destroyer. – Read about the reasons & surprises here
So, this is the glorious end of Destroyer. I will spare you the heroically delivered speech about how it was not just a magazine but a statement, a glossy & wild battlecry in a fight against a society that wants to put the teenage boy into a Victorian cage of decency & prudery. I won’t rant on about the double standards of people who drool over seminude 14 year old girls on fashion mag covers but see the end of the Western world coming when you do the same thing with a boy. You know all this.
Instead I will just speak for myself. I found out about Destroyer in the very moment I was starting this blog and it became the most important inspiration for me to keep milkboys going because it helped me to understand where I want to go with the blog, what I want to tell the world about this mystical creatures boys are and which kind of people I want to reach. And after The Pirate Bay, Johan Palm & Snickers Cake it was another great product from Sweden that enriched my life on many levels
Go, get your copy of the last issue of Destroyer before it’s sold out. This would also be the perfect opportunity to complete your collection of older issues, it might be your last chance to get them.
