Hailing frequencies open! Welcome to the first episode of Robby The Robot’s Waiting. Yep, we know the title only makes sense if you’re aware of both 1980s Bananarama hits and 1950s space films. But we hope that if you like sci-fi and fantasy, you’ll get a kick out of 50 minutes in the company of genre gurus and SFX magazine old-timers Richard Edwards, Tanavi Patel and Dave Bradley. Join us this week for our takes on the latest sci-fi news, a look back at the best of Buffy, a look forward to the first-ever online-only San Diego Comic-Con, and an anecdote-laden chat with author and journalist Tara Bennett, as she joins us from LA to reveal the incredible behind-the-scenes access in her official Marvel movies book.
