Retro Game SuperHyper Issue #2

By TJ Rappel in Retro Game SuperHyper

36 pages, published 1/17/2019

The second issue of Retro Game SuperHyper fanzine has finally arrived! A companion piece to the popular classic video gaming blog, RGSH #2 is 36 pages featuring a few remixed articles from the blog, and a ton of brand-new, ‘zine-exclusive content!

I had originally intended to get it out back in October, and as such, I decided to keep the date of 2018 on the cover. Unfortunately, a number of things delayed the zine’s release. I got frustrated and even almost gave up. But I got inspired, pushed through and got it finished, and I am so happy I did. I’m very proud of this ‘zine, and if you like and appreciate physical magazines and independent publications as much as I do, I hope you’ll check it out.

Oh, I almost forgot — if you like the cover artwork, there’s a new t-shirt of it available at my TeeSpring shop, too!
