This is a post I have looked forward to doing since I started the site. The Official Batman Movie Souvenir Magazine from Topps ranks VERY high on my list of all-time favorite Batman movie merchandise. Overloaded with content, this is one publication that absolutely NO fan of the movie should be without. This issue has it all: Over 130 photos, the full movie story, behind-the-scenes secrets, a look at Batman collecting, a pin-up... and all for the low, low price of $2.95. And if you'll permit me to get a little sentimental for a moment, I'd like to describe just how much this inexpensive little magazine meant to me as a kid....
That is my original copy up there. You can tell a lot about how much you enjoyed something as a child by the state it is in when you look back it as an adult. :) I can remember the exact day my parents bought this for me. My father's work was taking part in a marathon run around town. Employees and their families were asked to be "station crew"; Basically manning a table of refreshments and checking in each runner as they passed. Knowing it would be an all-day event, my parents made a stop by the local convenience store so that my sister and I could pick up a book to help occupy our minds during our time at the table. Perusing the magazine section, my eyes caught a glimpse of Keaton's Batman. Even though I had not seen the film at this point, my excitement (like many adolescent boys in '89) was at a fever pitch. It was a no-brainer... I snagged the movie mag as quick as I could and lopped it into the awaiting hand cart. Even the time between checkout and the car seemed like hours. I absolutely couldn't wait to peek into that magazine. That day (and MANY others after) was spent with my nose firmly planted in it, burning every detail into my memory. Even after seeing the movie in theaters, this publication was my constant companion. At a time before digital copies on iPods and DVD players in cars, movie magazines were one of the only means of "taking the movie with you".
All those memories... for $2.95. Amazing. I have since bought multiple copies of this mag over the years, one of which I have scanned and presented here in its entirety. I hope you enjoy it... I only ask that if you do see a copy of this somewhere and the price is right, that you please go ahead and pick it up. A magazine like this deserves to be freed from those back-issue bins. :)
I recently brought the magazine off of amazon for a right price.ReplyDelete
And it's in good condition too.
Providing thorough entertainment, movies are a source of indulging us in an imaginary world. At times, the movies are so enticing that we start believing in being a part of that movie. With work load and stress, life can get worked up, watching a good movie will help a person relax his mind by releasing emotional stress. ดูหนังออนไลน์ReplyDelete
