RetroFan is back with a Summer-themed issue (Hey, it's still Summer!)

I think this was meant to come out just a tad earlier, but there's no reason we can't enjoy the new RetroFan magazine at the end of meteorological Summer. This issue is a little light on 1970s/1980s TV content, but Andy Mangels' column covers that realm with a big piece on Zorro cartoons from Filmation.

The main story is on the 1960s beach movies, and there is a long article on car-themed cartoon magazines of the Sixties that sounds a little esoteric even for me but is quite entertaining. I really like the history of The Wild Wild West and the accompanying profile of Michael Dunn (Dr. Loveless). 

Elsewhere in the issue, Will Murray takes a look at the Masters of the Universe franchise, giving Filmation even more love. The Norman Lear interview is repurposed from a book and, sadly, does not touch on the fuller Learverse concept Mike and I have dreamed ab--uh, discussed on the podcast.

RetroFan is published by TwoMorrows I have no affiliation with them other than being a happy subscriber!
