Re: Sega 8-bit Magazine

Just found on Google: http://www.digitpress.com/library/newsletters/challenge/ Someone from the Digital Press forums has posted the ultra-rare and never-before-seen-in-full premiere issue of Sega Challenge, and says he plans to post more. I am not a member of these forums, so I am not sure how to th...

Re: Sega 8-bit Magazine

It has been quite a while. Outside of your ability to provide these scans from your own copies, I was hoping someone within the community would be generous enough to contribute, but it seems most likely that too few people actually have intact copies anymore. By the way, this would probably be a goo...

Re: Sega 8-bit Magazine

Now, all that's left is issue #1 and #7. This is really exciting. I am sure the fan community will not be able to thank you enough for making these rare gems widely-available for all. Hopefully things keep working out this way, especially for the point reached now, because Issue #1 is the hardest t...

Re: Sega 8-bit Magazine

Feel free to tell anyone to link it here: http://www.zaponline.org/seganewsletter.html It is proving very difficult to scan the rest. Issues # 1-3 are in the process of being freeze dried, and this could take months with no guarantees. Issue #7's cover has just been scanned, but do to water damage ...

Re: Sega 8-bit Magazine

I figured the time was right to present this project to the Sega community. My contact is Chakan, who runs segafans.com. He is most excited and very willing to host and distribute whatever we come up with.

Re: Sega 8-bit Magazine


And that was one with a stuck front page. If you saved this one so well, there ought to be hope for the others.

No rush. Just do whatever is necessary as carefully as you can, however it takes.

Re: Sega 8-bit Magazine

Issue #1, #2, and #3 aren't possible yet, as they are in the process of being repaired. Here is the complete issue of #5. It's not perfect, but it's readable. If it's ok, I will scan the others. Let me know. http://www.zaponline.org/uploads/SegaIssue4Cover.jpg Very readable, very satisfactory (at l...

Re: Sega 8-bit Magazine

I am curious as to how exactly you are repairing them. I am pretty sure you know what you are doing, but I would like to keep track.

Re: Sega 8-bit Magazine

Do you want it in .pdf? Here is issue #4's cover in .pdf. If the quality is good enough, I will scan the rest. Team Sega Issue #4 Cover All things considered, that is not bad - on a listing, I would designate it as an "Acceptable" condition. If you can pull things together like that, espe...

Sega 8-bit Magazine

Sega Challenge (for the first 3 issues) and Team Sega Newsletter (for the final four) was short-lived but a very nice complement to the library of a Sega gamer in the late 1980s. Today, they seem to have all but vanished. Ter used to have a complete set, but they were claimed by natural causes many...

From the Sega/Sonic Fandom

I grew up with Sega and have never loved any other gaming company as much as Sega. I am one of those types: Master System pwns the NES and Saturn pwns the Playstation (and I find it hard to forgive Nintendo and Sony for what they did to Sega in the past). I am listening to "You Can Do Anything&...
