Inside EERIE 125 (October 1981)

In an effort to downsize, I decided it was time to clear out some of my collections (there are too many!). This round, I've chosen to sell off a number of vintage horror magazines. 

As I go through each one, I thought--as a pop culture nut--it was worthwhile to preserve the various ads that appeared in these magazines. Although I don't recall mailing away for anything in my youth, there were many opportunities to get anything your heart desired: from Star Wars, Superman, Mego toys--you name it.


Here are the ad pages that appeared in EERIE 125 published in October, 1981. This issue was devoted to the legendary Neal Adams.
