Commodore 64 Zzap! Magazine covers on a mug

A great retro mug designed by me featuring the classic zzap! magazine for the C64 and later Amiga

Can be Personalised with your name on at no extra cost if you wish.

All of my mugs come carefully packaged
and dispatched first class for quick delivery.
I wonder if she used Mort's scans, hehe. 8)

That looks pretty interesting, maybe a little blurry though. Is it time for a range of Zzap pens? :-D

It's a personal thing though I wouldn't have those covers on a mug for myself. All the covers in the 80's were great. However the two I would have on a cup to remind me of the 'days' would be Issue 18(Beyond the forbidden forest) as it was the most striking cover I've ever seen. Might be a bit evil cover to have on a mug.

The other cover would have to be Issue 26 (the one with the first megatape). Probably one of my favourite issues ever, from my favourite C64 time ever (summer 87) and that tape was awesome. There was a solid-3d demo by Sensible on it that blew me away. Shame they never made a game out of it though.

The cover with the first ZZAP! tape should have had a scan of the tape superimposed and a bit of Photoshop shadow magic to make it appear more 3D. I think.
