Sci-fi and fan­tasy have al­ways been about the need for es­capism. So at a time when the news is dish­ing up plenty of things to be pes­simistic about, we’re giv­ing you 116 ex­cel­lent reasons to for­get about all the bad things in the world, and get ex­cited about the next 12 months – af­ter all, there’s never been a bet­ter time to be a genre fan.

In our Ul­ti­mate 2019 Pre­view, we’ve ex­plored ev­ery cor­ner of the sci-fi and fan­tasy uni­verse to pick out the movies, TV shows, books and comics you’ll be hunt­ing down next year. Not only do we tell you ev­ery­thing you need to know about live-ac­tion Star Wars TV show The Mandalorian (p30), there’s in­ter­views ga­lore as we en­gage our spore drive for the re­turn of Star

Trek: Dis­cov­ery (p46), dodge Mar­tians with the BBC’s new The War Of The Worlds (p38) and look for di­vine in­spi­ra­tion with Good Omens (p34). There’s also the small mat­ter of Star Wars: Episode IX and Avengers 4.

But 2018’s not over yet... Bring­ing things back to the here and now, we ask Mark Gatiss about his He­roes & In­spi­ra­tions (p72), sur­vive an arach­nid in­fes­ta­tion in

Spi­der-Man: Into The Spi­der-Verse (p66) and pay trib­ute to the late, great Stan Lee (p18) – there’ll be a mas­sive cel­e­bra­tion of the Marvel leg­end next is­sue.

So the only thing left for me to add is to wish you a fan­tas­tic Christ­mas and new year from ev­ery­one at

SFX – we’ll see you in 2019!
