Delayed Gratification #26 – new issue preview

The next issue of Delayed Gratification is almost here – and here’s a sneak preview!

While the rest of the media world has been transfixed by the dramatic events in and around the general election, we’ve been keeping our eyes locked on the rear-view mirror to get our latest issue – covering January, February and March of this year – wrapped up and off to the printers. And it’s a zinger!

DG #26 will be winging its way to subscribers – and available from our online shop – in a matter of days. But in the meantime, here’s a whistlestop tour of the issue, with photos taken over our art director’s shoulder as we were on deadline…

In January we brave the searing desert of northern Mexico – retracing the steps of the hundreds of illegal immigrants who die attempting to get to the United States each year…


Later in the issue we head into more dangerous border territory: the Korean peninsula’s Demilitarized Zone, for a blow-by-blow account of the world’s longest-running military stand-off…


In February we’re off to Hollywood, to decode this year’s Oscar buzz…


And we also look at the body parts organ donors are most attached to


March sees a truly momentous moment that mattered…


And a fascinating insight into less weighty matters: our investigation into how the reality TV genre finally lost touch with reality…


We can’t wait to see it all in print, along with all the other fantastic stories and infographics in the issue. We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed making it. Hindsight: it’s a wonderful thing…
