1978 Mark Hamill interview

From Rona Barrett's Hollywood Super Special: Winter 1978, comes a one-page interview with Mark Hamill, who was about to begin work on "The Empire Strikes Back." I have featured this magazine in an earlier post about "Battlestar Galactica."

It's interesting to go back and read stuff like this, from before we had ever seen the movie!

1966 comic book ads

The first things I ever collected were comics, and looking through those earliest ones I bought as an 8 year old (that I still have) I am amused and taken back in time by the ads themselves. I liked "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." but this ad about a pen that "let you see through walls" was a bit deceptive. It doesn't mention that you must first have a hole in said wall or door to use the pen!

Below is a time capsule of all the shows I liked to watch on Saturday mornings in 1966, spent in my pyjamas and nursing a bowl of cereal ( I liked "Ka-Boom" cereal, remember that one?).
