Quote from Editor in Chief/Founder of V and VMAN, Stephen Gan:
James Franco does not simply appear on the cover of this issue. He also, through a self-portrait of sorts, brings to our readers an impressive 10-page work of art within the magazine’s pages.  It’s artistic, expressive, and worth seeing — both in print and as a moving image.  I always like to think of VMAN as a fashion magazine for stylish and creative men who have an artistic side — James Franco is just that.

Who would think that an actor of his caliber would have such fantasies.  He is an “artist” in every sense of the word, and very much a modern Renaissance man.  I don’t know that we’ve ever come across someone who so credibly rests one foot in Hollywood and one in the art world.  For that reason I think this body of work is a milestone.  Plus, his fascination with burning motorcycles, flamethrowers, and archers shooting flaming arrows… well it lends new meaning to the word, “Hot!”

Yes, we think he is, too!
