Cybernetix - Issue 2 (October 1989)

Issue 2 of Cybernetix was published on Saturday 21st October 1989. It was slightly more polished in format than issue 1, and the overall layout and design was a bit more "together" I thought. A.S. drew what I thought was quite a striking Tom Baker front cover (pictured), which due to its composition led to the fanzine logo being spread, rather unconventially across the bottom of the page. An unusual layout, but I quite liked it.

There were one or two good articles in this issue, and looking through them again now, I quite enjoyed re-reading J.T's moan about the "mystery" that Andrew Cartmel was trying to instill in the seventh Doctor.
