Time Warp Ahead!!! Original complete issue of Atari Age magazine. All fold-outs and order forms intact. Slight wear to edges, but very clean overall. This issue of Atari Age features the double page coverage of Mario Bros. by Nintendo. The Atari 2600 and 5200 Mario cartridges pre-date the NES Classic home video system of 1985 (1987 in the US). Second to last issue of this magazine as it would turn out. Catalog intact! Every issue of Atari Age is like a little 1980's time capsule in my opinion. The graphics, the interviews and the format itself are so representative of what we think of when think 80's pop culture. ATARI AGE MAGAZINE WAS THE FIRST MAGAZINE IN HISTORY DEVOTED TO GAMING AND GAMING CULTURE!
