The Silver City magazine contains exclusive articles, interviews, photos, and more!

This Kickstarter campaign is to help raise funds to produce and launch the 2nd issue of the Mad Max fan magazine 'Silver City'.  Issue #1 (which is also still available) contains photos of the Australian MAD MAX fan events in 2011, 2013 & 2015.  The second issue features dozens of articles and interviews from some of the original cast & crew and dedicated fans across the globe.  The funding goal of $1979 (in Australian dollars) represents the year of release of the first Mad Max movie.

For the first time ever, DARK OZ (the producer/publisher) will be offering digital PDF copies!!!  Mad Max has a global fan base and international postage is expensive, so I am offering BOTH issues as PDF versions for only $15 (in Australian dollars).

The magazine has proven to be very popular and sold to Mad Max fans everywhere!!!  You can order Issue #1 with this Kickstarter project.  Issue #2 surpasses Issue #1 with more than just photos - there are articles, interviews and information on the movies, fans, events, etc.  Each magazine is A4 size at 52-pages in full colour on high quality gloss paper.

Risks and challenges

There are NO risks, this is guaranteed to go ahead - I am attending the MAD MAX events in February 2019 and I will be selling the magazines there. I've been producing and publishing comic books and magazines, under the DARK OZ banner, regularly since 2010 and I always deliver quality products on time. There are dozens of people (cast, crew, fans, etc) contributing to Silver City #2, while over 150 creators have contributed to my comic books - they wouldn't put this much work in if I wasn't delivering the goods.
