  • Xanax 25: Denial Fest

Notable Stuff:

  • Despite the big #2 on the cover and spine, this is actually issue #5.
  • There were two covers for this issue. The Hellboy/Ash cover was available through local comic shops. Newsstand buyers got Doom cover art.
  • Lots of hate towards GamePro and EGM from the letter column in these issues.
  • Deicide: Once Upon The Cross is given a rating, but no review. Strange...
  • Flux has an awful lot going for it, covering a huge swath of pop culture between two covers and focusing on things the big boys (Wizard, Hero, EGM, Rolling Stone, etc...) aren't really looking at in-depth. It's a pity they last only two more issues.
