    RETRO FAN MAGAZINE Featuring Mego, Trek, more!

    So I picked up the "fabulous 1st issue" of RETRO FAN magazine at Barnes & Noble today. This is the Summer 2018 issue, US cover price is $8.95. Since I had never heard of it and this is the first issue, I thought it would be of interest to posters here.

    - Interview with Lou Ferrigno aka the Hulk
    - Spotlight on Filmation's Star Trek Animated Series
    - The Phantom (the guy in the purple suit)
    - How I Met the Wolf Man, Lon Chaney Jr
    - Visit Mayberry, plus Andy Griffith Show Collectibles
    - Zody, the Mod Rob
    - Mego's Elastic Hulk
    - and more

    Future issues look to include:
    - Elvira
    - Superhero Viewmaster
    - Richard Donner, plus visit Metropolis IL
    - 60s Monster Sitcoms
    - Shazam Saturday Morning TV show
    - Ben Cooper
    - Lunchbox collection

    Its like every thing everyone around here loves.

    ^ Yeah, if I can tear myself away from my phone Im going to crack it open and read some of the articles tonight. And will be on the lookout for issue 2 which they say comes out this month. I wish I had kept all of my old Comics Scene magazines. This reminds me a bit of that good old mag.

    Ah! Did not see this, but glad that others have discovered the mag too. I wondered if any of the talented people here were contributing articles.

    Issue 1 was great, with an article by Museum member John Cimino! Very excited to have an article coming on my Superman and Batman collections in issue #3!
