Here are two new covers for your MediaWatch! Film Review Special #37 and Xpose #62 have just been produced. Film Review and Xpose are just two of our range of TV/film related titles. These are the first covers (and cover features) we've devoted to LoTR, but there should be at least one more before the release of Fellowship...

I'll be preparing web editions with more extensive details, and some excerpts online, next week - but I wanted to try to alert my favorite LoTR fansite before anyone else did www.visimag.com/filmreview/ www.visimag.com/xpose/
are showing the covers now (Scroll down the latter for X62 cover). I'll be able to send issue-specific links next week once the editions are up.
