The latest issue of SFX is a Stranger Things season 4 extravaganza! There’s a choice of three collectible covers: you’ll love Jonathan, Will, Eleven and Mike (cover one); Lucas, Dustin, Max and Erica (cover two); or Robin, Steve and Nancy (cover three)?
It also comes packed with some great goodies. First up is an A1 poster with a photo of the cast on one side, with the reverse split between a Hawkins map and some cool Hellfire Club art. Second, a sheet of 13 stickers – new logos and fair art.
Below, we list some of the highlights of the edition. If you have any problems finding a copy, you can always order a copy online and have it delivered to your door (as a stock list). In the UK, the price (including P&P) is the same as buying in stores.
Leading the charge this month is a 14-page feature that looks at what’s in store for Stranger Things season four. The backbone of this is a discussion with showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer. There are also contributions from the production designer, prosthetic designer, set designer, prop master and 11 of the cast.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds
Does the new Trek’s serialized narrative leave you cold? If so, Strange New Worlds, the latest spinoff show, should be more for you, centering on the more episodic explorations of a pre-Kirk Enterprise captained by Christopher Pike. We received inside information from producers Akiva Goldsman, Alex Kurtzman and Henry Alonso Myers, as well as team members Celia Rose Gooding (Uhura), Anson Mount (Pike), Ethan Peck (Spock) and Rebecca Romijin (Number One).
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
It turned out to be a Weird-themed issue this month as our third major feature previews the latest mind-blowing MCU movie. We spoke to 16 different versions of writer Michael Waldron’s alternate universe. (Another 27 turned us down in various ways, working in catering instead, or could only communicate by waving their antennae…)
Star Trek: Prodigy
Trek’s animated show aimed at young people, featuring Kate Mulgrew’s Janeway as a holographic mentor to some Delta Quadrant kids who have taken over a lost Federation starship, is finally coming to the UK (on Nickelodeon, starting April 25). Yahoo! We spoke with creators Kevin and Dan Hageman.
Obi wan Kenobi
Ahead of Disney+’s new show starring Ewan McGregor, which sees the Jedi Knight getting into trouble 10 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith, we looked back at the character’s history and spoke with Michelle Rejawn, the series’ executive producer.
One thousand nine hundred and eighty four
We love a good retrospective! In this issue, we highlight a landmark TV piece: the BBC’s groundbreaking 1954 production of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, written by Quatermass creator Nigel Kneale.
And that’s not all, in terms of features. We also questioned recent Oscar nominee Eskil Vogt on The Innocents, his unusual take on children with powers; chat with director Keith Thomas about his remake of Stephen King’s Firestarter; present six pages of concept art and design sketches for The Batman; and remembering a certain robot in ruins with Short Circuit writer SS Wilson. We also chatted about mullets with Raised By Wolves star Niamh Algar, award-winning profile novelist Emily St John Mandel, and asked Adrian Tchaikovsky to fill out our author questionnaire.
And the great features are just the tip of the iceberg! Our news section, Red Alert, is packed with information on more movies, TV shows, comics and books. Featured this month: Shining Girls, the time travel thriller starring Elisabeth Moss based on a novel by Lauren Beukes; buzz movie of the moment Everything Everywhere All at Once; the upcoming TV version of The Man Who Fell to Earth; a new Constantine short; Alien Romance Colony War; and Doctor Fugitive, Spider-Man 2099 and Obi-Wan Kenobi comics.
SFX’s verdict on Morbius [flushing sound effect] launches 25 pages of critical analysis as we tell you which of the latest movies, TV shows, books, comics, audio plays and video games are worth spending your hard-earned money on!
