Flexing The Dead
I picked up my first copy of Flex yesterday in over 10 years.
Prior to that, I collected it religiously every month from the late 80's to the mid 90's and I still have them in the attic.
Other than a poster of Arnie and a free satchet of NO-X, I was suprised to see so many familiar faces gone.
I suppose it's inevitable with the passage of time, so I did a bit of googling and was shocked that so many of the old timers, who were actually quite young, are dead.

Bertil Fox doing life for double murder. (Reduced sentence from an original death sentence.)
Quite sad really, but other than natural causes, I really hadn't thought much about long term exposure to AAS which may or may not have led to the death of some of the above and others I haven't mentioned.
Even though I was never in it to get that ripped, they were certainly pretty inspirational characters to a skinny kid from East London.
Is a back catalogue of Flex worth anything these days?
