Well, in just over 24 hours the ZZap! 64 Annual 2019 – smashes its Kickstarter target. There is still load of time to support and get your name down for one of the annuals due this September. Congrats to Chris and his team from all at RVG.
It’s LIVE on Kickstarter now people, what you have all been asking for, the ZZap! 64 Annual 2019 from Fusion Retro Books. The annual will be hardback only and come in at 112 pages – it will be in full colour throughout. And best of all early bird pledges get The ZZap! 64 Annual and a Jeroen Tel 7″ Vinyl Single for £15/$20 So go PLEDGE now.
They have decided to keep the new cover by Oliver Frey a surprise so that when the book arrives on your doorstep in late September this year, it will be the first time a reader of the annual will have seen it. Oli will be dusting off his air brush once more to create the cover in the same way he created them back in the day.
ZZap! 64 was the magazine that every 64 owner went to for honest, frank reviews of the games to buy for the system as well in-depth features and ‘cutting-edge’ humour from the likes of Gary Penn and Julian Rignall.
The icing on the already calorie rich cake was Oliver Frey’s stunning covers, depicting aliens, space and military scenes and some very sexy ladies (here’s looking at you Leaderboard lollipop lady!).
With the success of the Crash Annual last year for the ZX Spectrum, it seemed appropriate to pay homage to this best-selling computer and produce a new issue of ZZap! 64 for the Commodore 64 also in the guise of an annual – so it will be in hardback and have the feel of the annuals that we used to read back in the 80s and 90s such as the Beano and The Dandy.
