There was a short-lived Men’s Adventure Magazine by bodybuilder Joe Weider and his brother Ben called TrueSTRANGE (1956-1958) and the tagline for this site is taken from that source, a nod to the history of the brand. Editor Xeno’s effort has been to enhance TrueStrange, removing the trashy tabloid elements and providing content that is more along the lines of Omni magazine (1978-1995), that is, educational, verifiable and factual amazements for the Internet era.
