This issue is all about the future. Growing up in the 70s and early 80s I was immersed in science, science fiction and art. It was, I thought, a pretty exciting time in the world. People had gone to the moon, some lived in a space station and we were sending probes out to explore the solar system. The future was getting here in a hurry and I was hungry for exciting ideas about it.

While I was making this issue I rewatched old movies and TV shows and I captured images and video. I cut together a trailer for this issue in the style of the Space: 1999 title sequence. Each episode started with a cold open followed by the theme music with quick cuts of all the action and explosions coming up. If you’ve never seen Space: 1999, there’s a copy of the title sequence from the first episode below.
