* Release Date and Covers are subject to change


Hey kids, sex and violence! Gary Groth interviews Frank Thorne, whose long and varied career as an artist has led from titles such as Tomahawk and Mighty Samson to the steamiest version of Red Sonja ever, as well as the creation of his own salacious barbarian babe, Ghita. Our comics' section features “All True Crime Stories” from Comics Code inspiration Crime Does Not Pay, the “magazine with the widest range of appeal,” as Charles Biro and Bob Wood proclaimed on the cover. Murdered corpses, heaving bosoms, mystery dates — what more can you ask for? How about an interview with self-publisher Carla Speed McNeil, creator of the “aboriginal sci-fi” series Finder?
