Right now Spectrum Magazine is on hiatus (as they say in the TV biz) as we get on schedule with our other publications and try to determine a future course for Spectrum. For years, major fantasy cult shows (first The X-Files, followed by Xena and then Buffy/Angel) created a large fan base that helped to support the magazine. Right now there are no shows in that category (some might argue Lost is, and we love the series, but it's not quite in the same category). Our Smallville/Alias issue (#32), which we thought would be a blockbuster, had only mediocre sales. (We're still big fans of Alias, and we check out Smallville from time to time.) So, in all honesty, we're not sure where to go at this point with Spectrum. In the meantime, now's a good time to catch up on those back issues you're missing!

sss01c4.jpg Spectrum Super Special #1
(July 2002) Revised and updated episode guides for the first five years of Buffy the Vampire Slayer! These guides originally appeared in earlier issues of Spectrum, but much of the material has been rewritten, and 90 new photos have been added! Also included: a Sarah Michelle Gellar interview (from Spectrum 21); an updated television talk show survey; a character checklist; and much more! 144 pages packed full--this volume weighs over 3/4 of a pound! Squarebound; card-stock cover.

sss2c4.jpg Spectrum Super Special #2
(June 2004) Spectrum Magazine, acclaimed for its indepth interviews and insightful coverage of film, television, and comics, has brought together some of the greatest names in Conan comics and illustration for one spectacular issue! All-new interviews include Kurt Busiek, Gary Gianni, Joseph Michael Linsner, and Cary Nord! This volume also contains reprints (with additional artwork!) of conversations with Barry Windsor-Smith (from the hard-to-find Spectrum 11) and Mark Schultz (from issue 34).

Plus: lengthy movie reviews of Robert E. Howard-related films (Conan, Conan the Destroyer, Red Sonja, Kull the Conqueror, and The Whole Wide World); and an all-new essay by REH authority Charles Hoffman!

No Conan fan will want to be without this extraordinary publication, in a deluxe squarebound format! 104 pages; $12.95 cover price.

sss3c4.jpg Spectrum Super Special #3
(November 2005) On the heels of the popular Conan issue of Spectrum Super Special comes a spectacular follow-up of additional Robert E. Howard-related material! All-new interviews include Frank Brunner (Bran Mak Morn), Gregory Manchess (Conan), John Severin (King Kull), Dave Sim (REH and Cerebus), Arthur Suydam (Conan), Roy Thomas (Marvel's REH comics), and Alan Weiss (Solomon Kane)! Also included are rare and out-of-print interviews from Spectrum magazine, redesigned with new art and photos: Gary Gianni (Solomon Kane and Bran Mak Morn) and Kevin Sorbo (King Kull and Hercules)!

There's also an all-new ten-page look at Barry Windsor-Smith's work on Conan, including a review of the recent Dark Horse Comics Chronicles of Conan reprint volumes, lots of rare art (some supplied by BWS himself), and a lengthy note from BWS on the topic. Plus: special contributions by REH scholars Charles Hoffman and Mark Finn.

Deluxe squarebound format with tons of rare and previously-unpublished art! Massive 144-page issue weighing over 3/4 pound! $16.95 cover price.

sse01c4.jpg Spectrum Special Edition #1
(June 1995) - Long out of print, we found a few copies in storage and are making them available! This issue collects all of the earliest X-Files material from early issues of Wrapped in Plastic into a single volume! It includes an exclusive interview with Gillian Anderson (WIP 12); the very first review of the series (from WIP 7); a detailed first-season episode guide (WIP 12); an essay on XF and the UFO phenomenon (WIP 12); a review of the David Duchovny/Sheryl Lee episode of Red Shoe Diaries, "Jake's Story" (WIP 6); a review of the second season premiere, "Little Green Men" (WIP 13); and finally a brief report on the rare July 2, 1994 edition of TV Guide with the XF cover that was distributed only on the West coast (and a few other areas) (WIP 12). Not only is Spectrum Special Edition a great collection of XF material, but the issues of Wrapped in Plastic from which the material was gathered are all out of print and very tough to find themselves!

These copies of SSE 1 were originally set aside because they were not quite mint. Even so, they would grade out at a solid very good+ to fine, and sometimes a little better. Our supply is very limited, so if you want one, don't wait! 32 pages.
