Yes, Folks it just gets better and better! Modern and classic sideshow and circus performances are just the beginning!
The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus!
More Strangeness Than You Can Shake a Stick At!
If you want to look into the modern world of the Sideshow, and everything that feeds into it, then Backwash is the magazine for you. As you read and learn you will become super excited that you found the one magazine that really covers weirdness. Unfortunately, Backwash is out of print. Fortunately for you, Atomic Athletic is taking care of you and your need to know.
Issue 18 is on the lower right of the pile in the photo. You get only issue 18 with this order. The open pages are from Issue 16's pages 18 & 19, and shown to illustrate the fact that this is a black & white magazine with color cover. That particular article is about the American Dime Museum.
Articles in this issue of Backwash include:
-"The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus"
-"Midgets & Giants: The First Sideshow Gaghering"
-"Bobbing For Pig's Feet: The Redneck Games"
-"Just Be Glad You're Not This Guy (There is nudity in this freak section, but mostly of goiters...)"
-and much, much more...
This is not a magazine for the easily offended, weak of heart and certain minors with parents who fall into the above categories. Does contain some nudity (but it is either fuzzed out or the photo is just terrible... I can't tell which one...), but DOES contain at least some of the 7 dirty words. You have been warned.
