    Just got it today, it saddens me how thinner the mag is getting. There must be some Behind The Scenes issues going on, like The Watcher incident a few months ago.

      It’s the normal 84 pages. But didn’t the end of the year issue be a special at 100 pages?

      LOL. Zooming in, it looks like some kind of visual episode guide (or else key moments, or something) of Peter’s 3 Series- you can see its split into 3 sections marked 2014, 2015 and 2017.
