1978:

I had the above, but I bought it at a bookstore while on vacation, and not through Scholastic. Apparantly they're pretty rare; they're not often listed on ebay, and the one or two that do get listed are never complete and are often missing the poster. Dynamite had a few other large special editions, some of which I had. I was a huge Dynamite fan back in the day.

I love how they used every typeface (now called font) at their disposal! What a great thing to have, I don't remember having one of those myself.

Oh man I could not wait to get the monthly Scholastic catalogs! I hope more issues of Dynamite find their way online, there's far too few of them out there.

I loved Dynamite. I blogged about this a long time ago. It was one of my faves. I always had to order it.

I remember Scholastic books, and getting Dynamite magazine. I remember my parents bought me several books and items as a surprise one time. There were several issues of Dynamite magazine, a book of Peanuts comic strips, "The Ghost of Windy Hill," and a few other things. Very cool.
