Kid Stuff #23: SuperMag


As you'll recall from our last SuperMag post, we're talking about a magazine much akin to Bananas and Dynamite -  one geared towards middle school kids getting their reading material from school book orders.  Of course, we had other outlets to get our periodical fix - Pizzazz, MAD, Cracked, and Crazy  - but those weren't hand-delivered straight to your desk at school.  As your teacher passed out the orders, you eagerly awaited your stash of pop culture gold; all while your friend looked on with envy.  Ah, yes, a new issue of Dynamite with The Fonz on the front - livin' the dream!

Here are scans from a few 1981 issues of SuperMag.  Peruse them here, or download the full sized PDF.  You might want to create a Retrospace folder on your desktop - we've got a lot more sharity coming your way.  Enjoy!

    1. Yeah, it's like the least sexy picture of Daisy Duke they could've ever taken - I think she's in a baggy flannel shirt or something. You're not missing much.

    Awesome. I still have a bunch of these from my childhood, but they are older than 1981.

    1. I heard your image host died, and your site subsequently died. Are you done with the pop nostalgia blogging game after all these years?
