Coilhouse Issue 03 Cover Revealed!

Issue 03 arrived today! We’re still too giddy to write up a proper post describing the issue, so for now, we’re just showing off the cover, photographed by the talented Gustavo Lopez Mañas. Part of a haunting series called Avatars, this image was shot exclusively for Issue 03. Behind the jump, a couple more images from this 8-page series. Watch the blog carefully this week – very soon, we’ll be unveiling the rest of Issue 03’s content, the day it goes on sale, and what other goodies (new shirt design! stickers!) we have for you.

Our third issue took us further down the spiral of paper-fetish addiction; we upgraded the thickness of both the cover paper and the paper inside. This time we went with a heavy gloss for the cover and experimented with embossing for the title. Many more facts about Issue 03 are yet to come!

  8. Kambriel Says:

    You’re reminding me so much of when we’d have the Atrocities catalogues printed… always getting paper that was about as thick as you could get without it being cardstock, matte silver ink on a greyscale cover (i.e. utterly subtle, but *we* knew it was there), etc… even down to the custom ordered black linen envelopes (of which I still have a stack!).

    The passion shines through… may it only continue to grow.

    Hold your horses with upgrading that paper! Soon this magazine will weight so much, that postage to finland will be enormous! :)

  41. Graham1138 Says:

    Thats just gorgeous.

    Tell me theres an easier way to buy issue 3 in England than there was for issues 1 and 2.

    If i have to slaughter another chicken and invoke another
    already-time-poor demon to get a copy, it will put a serious crimp in my day.

    Big squeeze to you all. Gx

  42. Aiko273 Says:

    Absolutely beautiful, I can’t even believe those are photographs!

  43. Nadya Says:

    cardiac tamponad, sorry to be the bearer of bad news here, but Issue 02 is gone. :( All sold out!

    Graham, I am going to be in the UK soon and will work on our distribution there, but for now, ordering off the site is your best bet.


  44. Lisxxor Says:

    You guys keep getting better and better with each magazine!

    Two of my favorite illustrators in the same magazine?! YES!!
    I love Stuntkid and Yana Moskaluk! <3


  45. Graham1138 Says:

    Hello Nadya, thanks for letting me know. Hope you get something excellent sorted out for distribution in England. In the meantime, I shall frighten my bank manager by ordering number three from the CH site. Have a lovely day. Gx
