Designed by Scott Ryan, we tried to have a potpourri of characters new and old on the front cover. Since we have only seen the first 8 parts, there may be a few tweaks to the cover depending on what happens in Parts 9 or 10. But this is the general idea of the front cover of Issue 3. It will be released September 24th, 2017.
The best way to get Issue 3 is to order the Dougie Special. You get Issues 1 & 2 shipped to you now and you are ready to go when Issues 3 and 4 are printed. Issue 4 will be part 2 of our reference guide covering parts 11-18. We also hope to have a few interviews and some surprises.

Reference Guide of Parts 1-10 by John Thorne. (Seriously, that should be enough to entice you.) Each part will be split into synopsis, notes and comments, filled with full color pictures from the episodes – courtesy of Showtime.

If you are attending the Showtime Twin Peaks Festival in Washington, we will be selling Issues 1 & 2 as well subscriptions. We will also be at the UK Twin Peaks Festival and hope to have Issues 1-3 on sales there.
Do you feel like Dougie? Do you want to wander around carrying case files and searching for coffee? We have everything you need in our “Dougie subscription special.” If you are brand new to The Blue Rose Magazine and you order the Dougie Special, you get all the Hard Copy issues that are printed now and are set for the rest of 2017. Issues 1 & 2 will ship to you immediately. You also get automatically subscribed to Issue 3 (Coming in September) and Issue 4 (Coming in December). We decided to offer this for all our new fans and readers. We are trying to offer a few different packages for the different readers that come our way.
The Dougie Special is perfect if you have never bought any hard copies of the Blue Rose before.
The Dougie Special includes:
Issue #1 – A detailed review of Mark Frost’s Secret History of Twin Peaks. This book is becoming more relevant as the new season plays on. We also have articles on the Missing Pieces, the music of Twin Peaks and part 1 of a Bob Engels interview and more
Issue #2 – A look at the Laura Palmer Diary which has just shown up in the new season. We have interviews with Mark Frost, Bob Engels and Jennifer Lynch. Coverage of the LA premiere from John Thorne, an article about the Darkest Secret of Twin Peaks and more. Issue 2 comes with a Showtime Promo card, while supplies last.
Issue #3 will be published in September and will be an Episode guide (Possibly parts 1-10). If you subscribe, you are guaranteed the pre-order low price. We also have an article about Catherine Coulson, David Lynch’s Art and tribute to Michael Parks.
Issue #4 will be published in December and we are hoping for it to be full of interviews about the new season. (Possibly the rest of the Episode guide (parts 11-18) We also would like to do a feature on the Laura Palmer house.
At The Blue Rose we are prepping Issue #2 trying to create something special for what will become the only issue of a Twin Peaks magazine to ever be published DURING an actual run of the series. This issue will be a collectable just for that fact. So we figured, why not up the excitement?
We can now announce that Showtime Networks has provided us with a unique collectible card and every person who buys Issue #2 gets one for free. To be able to partner with Showtime in only our second issue makes me want to ask for a glass of water because my socks are on fire.
When you purchase a subscription or order Issue 2 you will receive a 6×8 lenticular cards containing the official key art for the new Twin Peaks (both the Laura Palmer and Agent Cooper images will appear, depending on how you hold the card.) If you buy 2 copies, you will get 2 copies of the same card, etc. This is an official release so don’t miss this opportunity to own a one of a kind Twin Peaks item. (Yes, if you already pre-ordered you will receive one.)
The content in Issue #2 is more exciting than watching Pete Martell compete in a chess championship (or is it checkers now?)

If you subscribe, you do not have to buy Issue 2 as well. All subscriptions start with 2 and end with 4. Subscribing guarantees you the low pre-order price for the issues plus a discounted shipping charge. If you want Issue 1, you have to buy that separately.
This magazine will make history as being the first and only issue to be released while the series is actually running. Wrapped in Plastic started after the series ended and The Blue Rose started before. We live in fun Twin Peaks times.
