Count down the days to Christmas with humorous and informative videos talking about classic publications from around the world. Will we talk about your favorite old school magazine? Find out when you read the 29 Magazines of Christmas!
The Adventures of GamePro
[ Publisher: IDG Communications | Price: $2.95 | Format: Comic ]
Today we're taking a look at The Adventures of GamePro, a comic series that ran in early issues of GamePro magazine. In 1991, the periodical turned The Adventures of GamePro into its own magazine, which lasted three issues. Learn more about this oddity when you watch today's episode of 29 Magazines of Christmas.



Excerpt: Who's Alex West? He's the hero of The Adventures of GamePro, a comic series that briefly ran in early issues of GamePro magazine. You see, this was an era when every magazine felt like they had to have their own comic series. Nintendo Power had Howard & Nester. Die Hard Game Fan had Monitaur, Foul had this crap and Sonic the Hedgehog even got his own comic series in Sega Visions. But GamePro was one of the first, and one of the few to get a spin-off magazine.

On Tomorrow's Episode: Come back tomorrow when we'll take a look at Nintendo Power Strategy Guides. No, I'm not talking about Nintendo Power, but rather a short-lived spin-off you may have forgotten about. Find out what I'm talking about on Friday's episode of 29 Magazines of Christmast.
