In 2004 Future Publishing also launched into the kids market with new licenced magazines. First came JETIX Magazine, the official mag of the JETIX TV channel and then Official Duel Masters Magazine based on the popular trading card game.
Future was started with the publication of Amstrad Action, from which it grew to become one of the largest publishing houses in the UK.
