Exclusives

Well, here it is, SW! 22.4, the final one that will kill a tree or three. Given the shift in format, we decided to take full advantage of said-tree product (paper!) and allow some of the wonderful photography from volumes past to express itself one more time in your hands. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then conservative estimates would leave you at around 200,000 of the buggers to wrap your brain around. It could well be even more. Furthermore, our good friend Tony Squindo has crafted a kollektible kover as well as drafted up some cool 2015 band portraits, and for those who want to do things such as tot up who has had the most SW! covers, we have provided every single SW! cover for your further viewing pleasure.
