Neil Gaiman Guest Edits SFX!
The Sandman / American Gods / Neverwhere / Good Omens / Stardust … (we could go on) author joins the SFX team for one issue only to whip us all into shape, recount his personal history with horror classic Night Of The Demon , chat about his latest novel The Ocean At The End Of The Lane and much, much more…

Mr Sandman, Bring Me A Dream
…such as discussing his return to Sandman 25 years after the Dream King’s debut!

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Not one thing. Not even 10 things. But 25 things you need to know about The Amazing Spider-Man 2 assembled by SFX super-sleuth Nick Setchfield.

20 Reasons We Love Doctor Who In The ’80s
With less than six months left to the big 5-0, our look back at Who through the ages reaches the ’80s, the show’s spangly, divisive and ultimately doomed decade.

Under The Dome
The Stephen King novel (which bears more than a passing resemblance to The Simpsons Movie …) is getting the telly treatment courtesy of US network CBS. Discover what’s in store in our interview with writer Brian K Vaughan.

Pacific Rim and X-Men: Days Of Future Past
In the first half of our apocalypse-themed feature section, we visit the set of Guillermo del Toro’s robots-punching-monsters-in-the-face movie Pacific Rim, and director Bryan Singer talks about his return to the X-franchise.

The World’s End and This Is The End
And in the second half we chat to Simon Pegg about meta-pocalypse comedies, while Evan Goldberg talks pub crawls and wrapping up the Cornetto Trilogy. Or should that be the other way round?

Reviewed And Rated
We pass judgement on the likes of Star Trek Into Darkness , Byzantium , Wreck-It Ralph , Doctor Who series seven part two, The Ocean At The End Of The Lane , Guardians Of The Galaxy and Metro: Last Light .

Rachel Nichols
Continuum ’s leading lady talks season two, her favourite gadget and the secret of that suit…

PLUS! View Screen asks is Doctor Who faltering at 50? Could Hemlock Grove be the future of TV? And is Da Vinci’s Demons a little bit sexist? The answers (and plenty of other waffle) inside.

And That’s Not All
As well as penning a mighty ed’s intro and recording an exclusive intro video for digital editions (iPad and Kindle Fire only), Neil Gaiman contributes to our interview with SF luminary M John Harrison, while in news we look forward to French zombie drama The Returned , survival action videogame The Last Of Us and we celebrate the life of imagination engineer Ray Harryhausen .
