¡Alarma! (Spanish for "Alarm!") was a Mexican news-magazine that specialized in very graphic pictures of traffic accidents, murder victims,[1] as well as pictures of scantily clad women.

¡Alarma! was canceled because the editor died.[2]

History and profile[edit]

¡Alarma! was first published on April 17, 1963,[citation needed] and its success has spawned several competitors (including Alarde!, Enlace! and Poliéster). It was censored briefly between 1986 and 1991, during which time it was not published, before returning as El nuevo Alarma! The magazine states it had a circulation of 15 million copies. The magazine has been discontinued since 2014.
