Join us on the long, strange trip of the unique Alex Niño! In his first ever full-length interview, the veteran discusses his journey from his start as a "komik" artist in the Philippines to his current work as an animation production designer in Hollywood, U.S.A.! Alex also shares a huge gallery of his artwork, all behind a new Niño cover painting starring Captain Fear!

We also feature an exhaustive interview with Byron Preiss on his innovative career in publishing. Whether overseeing Steranko's Chandler, Harvey Kurtzman's Strange Adventures or Joe Kubert's Yossel, Byron's worked with them all!

Plus CBA Classic presents the most comprehensive look ever at the great Filipino comic book artists -- Nestor Redondo, Alfredo Alcala, and many more-- complete with the history of Filipino Komiks!

Also: An all-new Steve Rude sketchbook, as well as our usual news, views'n'reviews, and more cool stuff!

I'm glad that Filipino artists are being given due recognition via this magazine. Certainly I made sure to get several copies of it via friends, the publisher, and comics stores. This is one magazine I don't mind getting multiple copies of. And if you are a comic art fan, this is something you shouldn't miss!
