Spies, Spoofs & Super Guys! A Must Have Magazine of the 1960s

It's taken me far longer than planned to get my digital version of 1966's Dell one shot magazine, Spies, Spoofs and Super Guys ready as an e-book -- but it's just gone live.

For sale on Amazon!

The restoration work on its original 68 pages was grueling. The paper Dell printed on had gone to an unpleasant shade of ocher on  both copies of the magazine I worked from -- and both had some severe wrinkling from pulls at the staples.

This is the contents page and inside front cover as restored. As you can see, there's a lot of interesting content involving Batman, James Bond, I-Spy, In Like Flint, Matt Helm and Get Smart.

Once I got the magazine scanned and corrected, I decided to ad another 30 pages of 1960s oriented new content, along with 3 pages of promotional material for my other magazines, which makes this issue a whopping 101 pages! Here's a look at some of the new material:

The result is my favorite of my magazines, and I hope you'll agree. You can get a copy for $2.99 here:
