Agent Cooper stood there mystified. “What year is this?” he asked. Well, it is year 2 of The Blue Rose Magazine. Year 1 saw 4 issues, 18 new hours, 3 soundtracks and a ton of questions. Season 3 may have divided some fans, but it had to spark everyone’s imagination. You are left with questions and we have answers.
Year 2 begins in March with Issue 5. It has so much star power that we are humbled. Let’s start with the cover. You wanna see the picture? Not yet.
Comic Book Artist, Jeff Lemire, who was recently picked as writer of the year by Multiversity Universe Comics, has drawn an original wrap around cover. Jeff is a huge Twin Peaks fan and wanted to draw something new for the cover. He combines a few items from Twin Peaks mythology into one large picture that will wrap from the front to the back. This cover will be a one of a kind image and will be a collector’s item for Twin Peaks fans and Comic fans alike. This right here is all you really need to know about Issue 5, but there is more.
We have a brand new interview with Ray Wise (Leland Palmer). Ray talks about working on Season 3, talks about the Between Two Worlds bonus feature on the (ha) Complete Mystery Box set and talks about the original series. He truly loves Twin Peaks and its a great interview. He also promotes his newest movie called Iodine. You can watch it now at iodiniemovie.com Use the Promo code: BLUEROSE for 10% off.
You still need more? John Thorne writes about Parts 17 & 18, Courtenay Stallings takes on the BluRay extras and Scott Ryan covers the first of 3 parts on the soundtracks of Twin Peaks in the reoccurring article, Music in the Air.
One more thing . . . We have an interview with Emmy winning writer, producer Damon Lindelof of Lost and The Leftovers. He was the moderator at the San Diego Comic Con and is a huge Twin Peaks fan. We talk to him about the production of Twin Peaks and how it will effect the world of television.
