Comic Heroes - - Excelsior! - Will Salmon, Edi­tor

And a big hello to read­ers new and old. We’re back, with our first new is­sue since July 2014. Frankly, it’s a plea­sure to be here.

This mag­a­zine started life as a spe­cial is­sue of SFX mag­a­zine way back in 2010. It proved so pop­u­lar that it im­me­di­ately be­came a reg­u­lar ti­tle in its own right. We ran for four years un­til, like Cap­tain America, we were tem­po­rar­ily put on ice. But just like Cap it was merely a hia­tus...

We may have a new look but we’re very much the same mag­a­zine at heart. We love comics and we want to cel­e­brate them in all their glory. In this is­sue alone we’ve got fea­tures on ev­ery­thing from All-New, All-Dif­fer­ent Marvel to the Ver­tigo re­launch, James Bond and Grant Mor­ri­son’s gritty rein­ven­tion of Santa. Yes, that re­ally is a thing.

We’ve also got a won­der­ful colum­nist in the form of Leah Moore, a re­vived re­view sec­tion and the start of an on­go­ing guide to cre­at­ing in­die comics. And don’t worry if one of your favourites is miss­ing – we’ll be bring­ing things like our pop­u­lar Art Of pro­files back in fu­ture is­sues. This is just the start of our plans for Comic

He­roes and we hope you’ll stick with us. Our next is­sue is on sale 8 Jan­uary. Un­til next time then, see you in the funny pages…
