When younger, I was always on the lookout for magazines of any kind that contained items of interest. No, I didn't have tunnel-vision toward the monster mag section only; I knew that often other kinds of publications would occasionally feature those things I loved; monsters, Star Trek, Planet of the Apes, etc. I would also scan over the teen magazines; movie star mags, tabloids, and the comic satire mags like "Crazy," "Cracked" and of course, the first and best, "Mad."
Check out the recent posts on a couple of my other blogs: on "My Star Trek Scrapbook" get a good look at some 33-year-old newspaper articles on the then-young fan phenomenon; and on "Held Over!" take a peek at the original TV Guide ads for the legendarily-bad "Star Wars Holiday Special."
