The first ever issue of Maggie. Note the alternative (incorrect) spelling of the name
on Spaz's title screen.
This issue only took 1.5 months to put together (how times changed!) and Sammy Joe
warned in the editorial "I will not be able to spend this amount of time with future
The magazine shell ran in high res, and came with a very painful page flipping text
Sammy Joe underlines his editorial philosophy in the XTC Demo review "don't worry about the
spelling mistakes in this document, when I typed it I was rather pissed ... "
More shuessler science appears in the Automation Packer review "The reason the article
is in the magazine twice is fairly simple, I could not decide whether to put this
article in the utility section or the PD section, so my decision was, put it in both.
It looks more too."
There is news of a new TCB demo, which apparently has effects better than MindBomb,
although Sammy Joe doesn't believe this to be possible. This block busting TLB
production gets the most coverage in the demo reviews section and receives a whopping 9.57
out of 10. An unusual amount of sample demos are reviewed.
Spaz writes some graphics tips, in which he details how many toilet trips, burps and
farts he created during the articles making.
And the "Best Joke" or the issue: What do an Amiga and a hedgehog have in common?
No-on wants to touch them!
Released on 1st June 1990, who could have predicted that this would go on to become
the longest running disk magazine in atari history?
