You may have noticed that there’s a new X-Men movie out soon. With that in mind, we thought it was time we checked in on the Children of the Atom. This issue presents our pick of the 20 best X-Men stories, as well as previewing the ace-looking Apocalypse Wars crossover.
Elsewhere you’ll find a wide-ranging interview with Charles Soule, Paul Dini talking about his incredible new graphic novel Dark Night, Tess Fowler on the ever-wonderful Rat Queens, and Noel Clarke talking about the origins of his kick ass superhero book, The Troop.
We also have some fascinating retrospective pieces. Mark Millar and Nigel Kitching were incredibly generous with their time for our piece on The Saviour. And we get in-depth on the history of Action – the subversive ’70s comic that scared the national press. Plus all the usual news, interviews, reviews and stews. Okay, not that last one.
Finally, a big thank-you to everyone who came out to our launch party. We were bowled over by the turnout (as anyone who witnessed my terrified expression will be able to attest...). Thanks, as always, for reading.
