REMEMBERING THE EARLY COMIC SHOP NEWS

Comic Shop News #560

The following paragraph was taken from the Comic Shop News Website:

“Comic Shop News is the most popular publication about comics, with over 110 million copies sold to date. Each issue is full-color and features the Comic Shop Newsarama including the CSNsider, the best source for product information such as information about upcoming variant covers and new printings of sold-out titles. Monthly features include the only alphabetical checklist with Diamond order numbers available anywhere, the exclusive CSN Top Comics and upcoming release information from all the major publishers.”

Before comic book news by internet were all the rage, the fandom depended on a variety of printed periodical publications for their news. Some were sold like Amazing Heroes and the Comic Buyers Guide. Some were given away to customers with their regular purchases. Comic Shop News was and continues to be one those. In one of my regular bouts of nostalgia I decided to  decided to make a few cover scans from the copies that I have in my old box to share them with you. Enjoy.
