In Times to Come
Issue 127 isn’t fully scheduled yet, but in the near future Joel Gn will be back with a story of crime and double-dealing. Jörn Grote has two stories about Mars and interplanetary civilization; Stephen Heister takes a long and short view of time; and Byron Bailey has a new serial where animals play a major part. Meanwhile, Norman A. Rubin’s western will be getting ready to roll, and Roberto Sanhueza gives Katts and Dawgs a new twist.
Readers’ reactions are always welcome.
