This was the first newsprint issue that contained color. Of course, color in newsprint isn’t as vibrant or sharp as on glossy paper, but the color glossy covers wouldn’t appear until issue #12, which incidentally, was the official program for the Milwaukee Metalfest (Jack Koshick was cool enough to keep the mag in its normal format – he only wanted the centerfold to list the band times) That was the first issue to print 40,000 copies.
Issue #8 had its own claims to history, but that is for you to learn, or to own.
