It seemed dependent on sales. As it turns out, the Zzap annuals have done better than the Crash ones...

I'm a bit surprised by that, I would have thought the Crash ones would have a larger potential audience since I assume Crash had higher sales figures originally, but maybe us C64 owners have more staying power or something. ;-)

More interest overseas I'm willing to bet, even though many countries had their own magazines, and even people who never read Zzap originally but are in the C64 scene get to hear about it and check it out. Especially as we are reviewing modern titles, so it's like a handy buyer's guide for new software still heh.

I got mine today. Looking pretty good, from a very quick flick through. Great extras as well, with the C64 Fusion magazine, calendar and keyring!

I also got the drink coasters and they look excellent. Very nice quality on the image and good finish.

I also got the 8bit Annual a few days ago, (you were busy Andrew with most of the C64 reviews), so plenty of retro reading to be done over the next while.

Yep, and I'm now working on reviews for another annual, Retro Format magazine and the next ZZAP Annual... Oh, and co-writing a new book with Jerry Ellis...
