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. Features horrible nightmare, our magician making his final decision, evening in Centra and a very smiley future. The wholesome is getting to its end, or does it?

One issue to go and my aim is that it’ll be out in January ’23. If you’re interested in ordering this or the past issues (just reprinted #4 so it’s all available again) these cost 6€ per mag inclduing shipping. 60€ for the whole 10 magazine series. Just mail me.
