Amazing work. I just ordered mine :-)

@Skunkfish any chance of Issue 1 being available again in the future? I would love to get it too.

Issue #1 is available for free online here: https://cpcfanzine.com/products/colour-personal-computing-issue-1

@Skunkfish
I've spent some time with issue #2 now, and I gotta say; issue #2 feels a lot more professional than issue #1 - no disrespect intended. But this feels like a pro magazine to me. It really makes a lot of difference with the coloured backgrounds. Awesome work!

And thanks a lot for the uplifting words about 8-bit Memoirs.  :)

Thanks for pointing that out @mr_lou But, if possible, I would prefer to have a dead tree version so that I can scam people at ebay in the future  ;)

Received issue 2! I didn't have a chance to read it completely, but looks good. Worth the wait.

PS: I WANT MORE. Is issue 3 scheduled already?

It's possible, a couple of other people have asked as well. I was looking today and the print company I used for issue 1 can do low volume (20) for a reasonable price (in black & white).

Would anyone else be interested?

Cheers Juan! The Magica review was my favourite article to write :)

Issue 3 is being worked on, I'm at the fun stage of playing all of the wonderful games that have been released over the past 6 months or so!

BTW, My wife has been reading it and she isn't really interested in computers!

(So if she's reading it then that is something!).

I just received another copy.

I know I'm a big fan, and contributor and advertiser, and of course also an overall awesome dude, and let's not forget: The famous author of 8-bit Memoirs. But I can settle for one copy per issue.  ;)

Gonna give or lend out this 2nd copy to a mate of mine. Maybe it'll peak his interest enough to make him buy future issues.  :)

Ok so I read mine like ages ago. But seeing how there is loads of comments on here saying how amazing it is I thought I might say how much I too enjoyed edition 2. Decent length reviews and even a wallys guide to the M4.
Great stuff

Yes!  ;)
If anyone has yet to pick up issue 2, it has now been reduced to the bargain-basement price of £2 (including postage to UK - add £1 for postage to Europe, £2 to rest of world). Check out https://www.cpcfanzine.com
