Great magazine

Has given me lots of new shows to look forward to and also a great new book to start reading. Can't wait for the next issue Reviewed giovedì 20 marzo 2014

Great value and great magazine

I liked the virtual version so much I have now taken out a subscription to the print version. I was reading the this version on 7 inch nexus which might be a bit small. Can't argue with the price though. Good value and a good read. Reviewed mercoledì 19 marzo 2014

Great reading

Been reading paper edition of SFX since issue 34 for about 12 years then stopped, thought I'd give it another look and try the digi-mag version and it's great! Enjoying getting back into it after being 'out of touch' with the media of film, books and comics info for so long. Plenty of editorial not just huge pics like some other mags - well worth the money.
