For two decades, the paper version of this respected special-effects mag has detailed the visual wizardry deployed in films from ”Alien ”and ”Altered States ”to ”Stuart Little ”and ”Mission to Mars.” Now you can read online synopses of articles and buy back copies — and since all issues are indexed by artist, company, and film title, you can also find, say, a filmography and list of stories on Rick Baker. Meanwhile, the archive of 20 years’ worth of covers constitutes an F/X Hall of Fame: ”E.T.,” ”RoboCop,” the Sta-Puf Marshmallow Man. Very, um, effective.
