This month our cover story is on Captain America: The First Avenger. We look at the different characters in the movie and you're in for a treat with all the featurettes from the movie in our coverage. This of course thanks to United International Pictures Singapore who were kind enough to invite us to the premiere screening of the movie and the awesome cover art. I'm a huge Iron Man fan but i gotta say i enjoyed this a lot more because it was seeing the origins of superheroes, the leader of the Avengers, the one comic which eventually lead to Iron Man in the first place so I know it may sound weird but there was a lot of emotions for me watching Cap on the big screen.

I guess while preparing for this issue what really caught my attention would be when we got to meet Neon Trees. The band in a tie up with Diesel held a meet and greet session with their fans at Diesel Paragon. Just standing there watching the band pay absolute attention to every one of their fans was really nice. There was no air about them, they just behaved like very genuine down to earth people. Even when we were recording their greeting our camera had some trouble and it wasn't till much later that we realised that the recording was not done well, they over heard and when we asked if we could do it again, they were already in position ready for another take. I like how they kept it real while being professional at the same time.
