Also received BS sister mag, Interzone #247 (July-Aug.), featuring my usual 'Laser Fodder' reviews, as follows:

This issue's book section has my review of graphic novel, Sláine: The Grail War by Pat Mills, Nick Percival, and Steve Tappin. If there were rating for book reviews, I'd give this 2000 AD reprint collection a 6/10 score.
