Those sleazy superheroes The Seven are the cover stars of SFX magazine issue 330, which is now sitting in the shops, patiently waiting for you to take it home. Below we run down just a few highlights of the issue; alternatively, you can get a feel for the contents by skimming through this digital preview.  
Remember: if you are shielding, self-isolating, or just minimising your trips outdoors, you can always buy a copy online and have it delivered to your door. In the UK, the price (including P&P) is the same as buying it in the shops!

Da diddle a dah-dah! Da diddle a dah-dah! The Boys are back in town, as the shocking superhero show returns to Amazon Prime. We go on-set in Toronto and speak to showrunner Eric Kripke and four of his cast.

Lovecraft Country

Matt Ruff's 2016 novel was the starting point for this '50s-era show from Jordan Peele's production company. Set on an Earth plagued by Lovecraftian monsters, it follows an African-American former soldier on a roadtrip across Jim Crow America in search of his missing father. Showrunner Misha Green tells us to expect something "bananas"!

Set phasers to fun! After 47 years, Star Trek's warped into animation again for this comedy show, which centres on the less prestigious ranks of a not-so-impressive Federation vessel. We open hailing frequencies with showrunner Mike McMahan.

Strap a bra on your head as we look back at the John Hughes movie in which two dweebs create the woman of their dreams, in the company of star Anthony Michael Hall. 
And that's not all, feature-wise. There's another instalment of our epic feature on the props of Picard. We also preview the latest season of Lucifer, profile author Matt Haig, get fellow novelist Lauren Beukes to list her heroes and inspirations, and quiz Pose's Billy Porter about his guest star role in The Twilight Zone.
