Also on that issue, there is coverage of the upcoming Children of Dune, a review of Houdini 5.5, a discussion of the new breed of animation studios and animated features, in particular the new batch of lower budgeted ones like Jimmy Neutron, and the work done to complete Ray Harryhausen's The Tortoise & the Hare.
