Looks like another good one :D

I'm particularly interested in the Zzap feature.

I'll have to try and finish off the current one before it arrives.

Looks good. I'm mostly looking forward to the Super Star Wars Trilogy, Sacred Armour Of Antiriad and CRL Group articles...but I'm sure there'll other interresting things too. :)

Is it a new cover or an old one from Zzap or Crash?

Sounds like decent issue. A pity then that it reputedly won't sell all that well due to the non-commercial nature of its front cover...

A Crash cover and inside an article on Zzap, that just doesn't seem right to me :D
