I can imagine, trying to do something like this privately would be tough, as a one off occaisional thing its great. The magazine could probably survive longer electronically though, it would be more sustainable and you only have to produce 1, publish it online and subsribers could pay a small fee to view the latest edition. Good revenue raiser for the site, even at 1 quid.
I'm sure enthusiasts would dig that. When the issue was old enough you could downgrade it to free. Could create a sustainable future.
There's no need to print it to sell it, alhough it is nostalgic to do so, the C64 has an amazing ability to defy time, see my other post on C64 for Nokia N-Gage.
Certainly the most succesful home computer of all time. Brought another tear to the eye when Commodore themselves bit the dust, and I was forced to by a 486. Glad to see the Amiga is still around too though, and deservedly so, I would love to get my hands on the latest Amiga, would make a great compo prize. PCs of the time were no match for it.
I think you've all done an admirable job with 107 and this website. Brought a tear to my eye when zzap left the shelves, brought another one when I discovered this site. And another one now as I type. Much of my childhood is here!! I'd pay 10 quid for a copy as well (Hell thats only $30 Australian) I just bought a Sinclair Spectrum plus 2 for that only.
The average Magazine now (eg PC Format) costs about $15 when it gets here, more for an Import. I reckon $30 would be affordable a cuppla times a year. The trouble is material for the mag (as I noticed from the 108 forums). A Zzap! Album (a bit like Beano and Dandy - Hardback once a year) could work. Retro remakes could be the way to go too... but I digress!!
