Below is their Lee/ Shooter head honchos interview.
COMICS SCENE applied the same formula STARLOG had been using since 1976 to comic books (and spin-off movie and TV projects), creating a professional-looking, widely distributed, article-based "fanzine". A sure sign that comics were growing up.
The magazine enjoyed a chequered history: the initial run lasted a mere 11 issues (to September 1983) although Starlog continued to run comics reportage under the Comics Scene banner.
Volume 2 arrived in 1987 and enjoyed greater success during the industry's boom years, clocking-up 56 editions until folding again in 1996. COMICS SCENE 2000 was a short-lived third go, publishing three issues in 2000.
Starlog continued until 2008 before succumbing to bankruptcy.
