Featuring an exclusive painted cover by illustrator David Michael Beck, this issue celebrates Michael Moorcock’s Elric anniversary by talking to Moorcock himself, looking back at the past of the character in comics and what Boom! has planned for it. The magazine also profiles movie location scouting company Sarah Eastel plus London fantasy author Christopher (Bryant & May) Fowler talks about his career.

It’s 50 years since Fantastic Four #1 so Tripwire is commemorating this with a look back at Marvel’s first family with the help of some of the creators who’ve been part of FF history.

Then there’s STRIPWIRE, featuring 22 pages of comics from artists such as Roger Langridge and Kev Mullins, a profile of classic artist LB Cole, the return of old favourites like the Power List and the Graphic Novel roundup and a look at the success of Paizo’s Pathfinder RPG.
