Retro Game SuperHyper Year 1

By TJ Rappel

32 pages, published 10/16/2017

From the popular videogame blog of the same name, Retro Game SuperHyper Year 1 ‘zine celebrates the blog’s first birthday by compiling and remixing some of the best articles from the blog’s first year, and includes some exclusive new content not available online! 32 pages of full-color retro gaming love!

I’ve actually had this planned since just a few months into doing the blog. I thought putting out a real ‘zine would be a cool way to mark the milestone of making it through my first year.

I have a long history with fanzines which you can read about in the pages of this mag, and I was a graphic designer before becoming a tattoo artist, so this project is really bringing me full circle. I’m really proud of it and I hope you get a chance to check it out!

PS: If you notice that there are no Arcade Pilgrimage features in the ‘zine…there’s a reason for that, and it involves even bigger plans. I hope you stick with me through the future of RGSH! Thank you!!
