Fringe… final freak(out).

We love a good poster to celebrate the end of a fine science fiction TV series. We like a freaky one too. Good job, because this latest poster for the end of Fringe is right up there in the annals of damn scary images.

It has the well-established format of an interview, a selection of short stories and some reviews. From the cover artwork my expectations were to expect a […]
