I was going to wait 'til Halloween to post this, but I really didn't have anything else to post today...

Dynamite Magazine had several deluxe editions. I've only since learned about them by doing image searches for pics to post here on my site. I had two: The Dynamite Club Handbook and The Year-Round Catalog Of Hot Stuff. There were about a half-dozen more that I hadn't heard about (like the above). Maybe they were only sold in book stores because I don't ever remember seeing them on the Scholastic order forms in school. I guess back in the day these only cost $1.50, but I'm sure if you found a complete unused edition on ebay you'd end up paying at least 20 bucks. Then again you don't often find them on today's secondary market, either they were used extensively and didn't survive, or nobody knew about them (like me) and therefore not many were sold. Who knows.

Ack! I have been thouroughly enjoying this little walk down memeory lane!
I actually had a subscription to Dynamite magazine one year, and I totally remember the art of the Dracula from the one you posted! Damn! I wish I still had at least one magazine left for posterity. I am a huge collector of all things, but I do have a pretty cool metal lunchbox collection that dates from the early 70's to current day. My Sid and Marty Krofft boxes are my favorites!

I bought a couple of dynamites on ebay a few years ago: the beatles vs. the bee gees, and the love boat one. I had the love boat one back in the day, and I got it through ebay because it has a 1979 calendar. I bought the bee gees one because even though i didn't have it back then, I always loved the cover.
