Wow, it’s been five years of bliss already?! It’s been five years that everytime there is a new issue from THE MISSION on our screens, we’ve been hiding at work or laying on the sofa to read it, and it’s always been the same, awesome! Everytime we read the mag, we are transported, we loose comon sense, we are somewhere else than we really are. And that is probably one of the best gifts from this magazine. The Mission is probably, with SCOF and This Is Fly (if they ever come back), the closest we get to Le Mouching way of life! Enjoy #30 and sweet dreams! 

To start, this amazing cover from artist Conrad Botes!
