Some samples on the new Future#9 magazine. This 2nd last issue of the series presents ‘The Exhibition’ of the bohemian bunch that the reader has seen building something through the back issues.

Future serie is getting nearer to its end with #8 just out the printers. The storylines are getting wrapped, tied, looped & twisted. In this issue: a new life begins, the rich get poor, science fails to explain our world, the day in Centra falls into night, magic taking place and all that and yet a bit more.

I’ve reprinted #1 again so all the issues (#1–8) are available, directly from me as well (6€ each). My aim is to get the last two issues done this year so stay tuned. I’ll post an updated list of the distributors in a month.

Remember that you can as well still subscribe to it all, ten issues being 60€. If you’re interested in ordering just MAIL ME.
