A lot of the bigger fanzines have now moved to a digital Kindle and iPad format. Some of them have gone digital only due to the cost of printing and the occupational hazard that is a good soaking whilst stood selling on a match day.
Like I say, here at Mudhutter, we revel in refusing to move forward and are in full consideration that the feedback that we get is that, you: the reader *waves at reader* likes to keep things the way they are.
We will continue to produce a 48 page printed magazine throughout this season for your delectation. However, we are now in a position to offer digital copies at a discounted price of just £1.49 each or a five issue digital subscription for just £7.00.
No postage costs and no print costs. The only downside is that you can’t use it as emergency bog roll.
If you do want to try out this new fangled digital format then see below for the appropriate links

Want to know what’s in the latest issue? Read on…….
Yes we’re back and as fashionably late as ever. Issue 48 is exactly 48 pages and is still priced at two pounds for a near half century of reading material.
This issue we are delighted to include a revealing, in-depth interview with one of the most popular and exciting Wigan Athletic players of all time, one Nathan Levi Fontaine Ellington.
Elsewhere we cast our eye over the goings on at Blackpool and Hull, wave a teary goodbye to MFE lovechild Jordi Gomez and ask whether he really was just Jeff Wright in disguise. Bagg does pre-season in Dusseldorf and there’s tributes to Rik Mayall and Romanzo Criminale.
We look at those players who turned up to play while their hearts were elsewhere and ended up being a complete waste of space and a drain on the wage bill – mentioning no names WHATSOEVER at this stage – and there’s an extract from Jimmy O’Neill’s latest book. Plus there’s all the usual features and contributors and not forgetting great cartoons from the mischievous Tat, who’s in rude health right now. Well, it’s just rude if truth be known.
We will continue this year intending to do five issues bringing one out every six to eight weeks. With this in mind, we offer a five issue subscription running to May 2015 where you can get 25% of the cost of the magazine including postage.
Just as football without fans is nothing, fanzines without fanzine fans are nothing. So we once again thank everyone who has bought a copy and hope that you can continue to do so what with the prices going up for season tickets, parking and ale and that.
We’ll keep scribbling if you keep buying. Thanks for your support.
