Okay, clearly I made that up. (But if it were true, it would explain the recent Howard the Duck cover.) Meanwhile, feel free to drink – responsibly! – every time you see another Trek article listed in these writeups.

Animation legend Chuck Jones and science legend Arthur C. Clarke chime in this issue with letters to the editor. Any issue that features those can't be half-bad.
#108, Arthur C. Clarke claims some credit for predicting live media coverage of the moon landing, tons of readers respond to Ben Bova's recent guest column (in #106) on stellar war and peace, a reader actually follows up on his complaint that Starlog doesn't cover Rambo (quit while you're behind, sir), and more; Medialog features David McDonnell's genre news roundup (printed on a streaky black-and-white page that is nearly unreadable, though I can just barely make out that plans are afoot for a new version of the My Favorite Martian TV series), plus there's news about a new Star Trek series (you know what to do) called Star Trek: The Next Generation.
"One thing we've tried to express with Watchmen is the investigation of the superhero. We've tried to work out how a real superhero would live and function in a realistic world, what he would be like psychologically, what sort of things would really motivate him. We've also tried to examine how the presence of a superhero would alter that world in terms of technology, politics, what people think and so on."
