1989 was an interesting year for the genre and business as usual for the magazine. In many ways, 1989 was essentially 1988 part 2 with tons of sequels. Let's take a look...
Note #2: Due to a change-up in release months the issue numbers might be a little off. Also, from here on in we'll going with brief capsule reviews of each issue, unless one comes up that I feel requires a little more attention. I would like to get caught up with the current product at some point.
As you can see, not much retro stuff as 1989 will turn out to be just as jam-packed as the previous year. Still, a good issue to kick things off.
1989 was a decent enough year for the genre but it was sort of plain. It shows in the magazine as this run of issues has a few highlights but for the most part just seems to repeat itself. 1990 will be somewhat similar.
