Comic Heroes - - FRONT PAGE -

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.

Will Salmon, Edi­tor
