For 2012’s cover, Todd Franson had well-known leather titleholder Steve Ranger busting out out of a suit — Clark Kent-style — revealing a harness encasing a perfect chest. The accompanying articles by Will O’Bryan, John Riley and Doug Rule fully delved into the weekend’s event, and included a look at the burgeoning world of puppy play, something we explored in greater detail this year.
