Memories of the fantastic movies, TV shows, books and comics of my youth. Lots of clippings from my scrapbooks and articles from my magazine collection, as well as some vintage advertisements just for fun!

"V - The Final Battle" 1984 TV Guide article
Back in 1984, one of the most anticipated events on TV (at least for me) was the sequel to the highly-rated "V" saga. The article featured this time is from the May 7, 1984 edition of TV Guide, revealing the makeup technique used on the memorable scene where the Visitor is revealed to the rest of the world.

It was then that "John" realised he should have disguised himself as someone more beloved than TV's Karl Maldan.
Below, the TV Guide Close-Up on the return of the popular V epic.
Born in the late 50's, a kid in the 60's, a teen in the 70's, I'm "forever-fourteen."

The profile photo symbolizes the efforts of my stepdad to rid me of my "childish" interests, as he called them; at which, not being a man of strong imagination, he failed.
