Hey there Monster bloggers! I am going to TRY to stretch this one to 10 as it is Wednesday Wishlist! I love magazines. So great!
1. Toyfare issue 1- Yeah the first time Wizard tried to do Toyfar they came out with this first issue. I read mine till the cover fell off. I love it. Wish I had it again!
2. Toyfare issue 2- Oh yeah! This kicked off the standard Toyfare issue every month. But this was the first.
3. Fangoria 28- The first issue of Fangoria I ever picked up. I was obsessed with Friday the 13th part 2. WISH I had this again!
4. Fangoria 29 through 31- These were my next Fangoria issues and pretty much my last ones. 4 months of strict horror...That and my father made me get rid of them when he became one of Jehovah's Witnesses...
5. Rolling Stone Batman issue- This was special for me because I was in the midst of Batman fever. This at least to me was the first time comics had been discussed by a modern magazine like Rolling Stone.
6. Moonraker- Gotta have this again. As I remember it was all black and white but I loved it. Was SUCH a fan of Jaws. The character and the shark.
7. WWF magazine 1985 Jan issue- This was the first WWF magazine I ever picked up. I had just become a fan in 87. How I found this I have no idea as it was released a few years earlier...Would love to have all those eighties issues back.
8. Ninja Magazine 4- First one I ever picked up as well. My friends Chris, Eric, and I were ALL about Ninjas in the mid eighties. These magazines contributed alot to playing in the woods.
9. The Newsweek Alien issue- I am SURE this is circa 1979. Dad had it and I loved looking through it.
10. Hero Illustrated 1- This was going to be another Wizard magazine...I think it failed after 2 issues. But I really liked the first one.
Bonus- Wizard issue 9- This was the first issue of Wizard I ever picked up...LOVE this issue. It showed Toybiz' second Xmen figure wave. I stared at this thing for the longest. I was Toybiz crazy back then.
So that is it. I WISH I had these magazines again. Perhaps one day I will.
