Crash advertisment in PCG december/januar 1983/1984 issue

edited June 21 in Magazines
Hi
Crash first issue came February 1984
However in Personal computer games magazine issue 2 (December/Januar issue)
there is an advertisement for crash magazine in page 137 at the bottom
and it shows the cover of the crash magazine and on there the date is December(the year is not clear but it is 1983 i believe)
Did the crash magazine try to start at December 1983 but eventually started at February 1984

    I've asked Roger. I'll post the reply here.

  • Did they do a pilot issue which was only available in NW England? I know a lot of publishers did do that sort of thing to test the market.

  • I don't know the thing is
    that the cover on the first crash magazine and the cover on the magazine crash in this advertisement
    is the same so i believe its the first issue of crash which published on February 1984
