SFX Annual

Welcome to the first SFX Annual, packed full of the very best movies, TV shows, books and comics that have made 2017 one of the most exciting years for sci-fi and fantasy ever. We’ve journeyed through space and time to visit the set of Peter Capaldi’s final series in the TARDIS. We’ve donned our winter wear for a trip to Westeros as Game Of Thrones kicked off its penultimate season. We’ve seen talking raccoons, giant robots, acid-blooded aliens, adamantium-clawed superheroes making their last stand, webslingers, and a triumphant movie debut for a certain Amazonian princess. So while we couldn’t squeeze in every bit of sci-fi and fantasy goodness that made 2017 a blast – that annual would be so big you wouldn’t be able to pick it up – we hope you enjoy this celebration of the most exciting genre in the universe.

Has there ever been a better time to be a sci-fi fan?

teen spirit

There’s one perfect thing in Peter Parker’s legendarily luckless life: timing. That’s Kevin Feige’s take on Spider-Man’s belated arrival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The wallcrawler isn’t late to the blockbusting party, the producer argues. The party’s simply been waiting for him to show. “He’s the core symbol of the company,” the key creative behind Marvel Studios’ globestraddling success tells SFX. “The reason it was so brilliant of Steve Ditko and Stan Lee to create him is that he represents this perfect counterpoint to these other superheroes, whether they be super-soldiers frozen in ice or billionaire weapons inventors or princes of far-off worlds. He’s just a kid. There had been a number of other, more famous superheroes and Stan and Steve thought, ‘Hey, what if we brought a kid into the middle…

about a boy

What did you want to bring to the character of Spider-Man? My main thing was to not do something that had been done before. It’s quite hard to come by original content. So I just really, really dove into the research about finding new and unique things we hadn’t seen with Spider-Man and especially Peter Parker. And making him younger, I think, was a very smart decision on Marvel’s behalf because it just makes it more relatable. Not only to an older generation but to a younger generation because it’s nice to be able to go and see a movie and see someone as incredible as Spider-Man go through the same things that they’re going through. But then it also appeals to an older audience because everyone went to school. So…

better by design

How does it feel to be handed one of the most iconic costumes on the planet? Because Marvel have the long history of the comics they have very specific plans for how they want things to be. They come up with the concept and then they have you execute it. It’s sometimes very straightforward and sometimes it’s like doing a staircase by Escher – it’s a thing that you can illustrate but it’s impossible to make! What was the hardest part of creating the costume? Endless experimenting to get the texture right. We were printing on a dyed textile. The dots we were printing looked a bit like a ping pong bat. If you got the dots too high, too raised, they would collapse. If they were too close together or too far…

winging it

“He strikes from above – silently and without warning!” No, not that bastard urban seagull evacuating its bowels but classic Spidey villain the Vulture, first seen menacing Manhattan in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 1963. Only the second foe to face the web-slinger, the Vulture is electronics wiz Adrian Toomes. Embezzled by his business partner, Toomes takes to crime, making use of an electromagnetic harness that allows him to fly, boosts his strength and augments his lifespan. Creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko clashed over the Vulture’s appearance. “Stan believed the most effective villain was the heavy-set one,” Ditko recalled. “So Stan didn’t like my thin, gaunt Vulture.” Lee continued to feel uneasy at the sight of Spidey beating up a scrawny old codger. He later introduced a younger, burlier Vulture in the…
