Zzap! Annual 2020 kickstarter

if this hasn't already been mentioned... 9 days to go and you already get the book, calendar, a c64 game (digital), and a keyring if it hits the next target for the 15 pound backing.

Been looking at this. Loved the first annuals, and they are great quality, great value. Fusion books kickstarters are the ones I trust 110%.

Only reason I've been arguing with myself is due to having the other Zzap 64 and Crash Annuals, and wondering how much space I can use for these on the bookshelf. Ah, they are so good though!

^^ You were the one who got me on their last Kickstarter with praise about Fusion products and I must concur, I completely agree, great products and everything was on time with the last campaign, so I had to go again this time 'round. :) So thanks for the heads up, your advice was spot on. ;)

And thanks back! I was deciding whether to buy the new one, if I needed another Zzap 64 annual and of course, I think it's a treat I won't pass up so appreciate the reminder! But yes, I remember jumping on board for first the book on Oli Freys superb art, then the Crash annual, and a few books like the Ocean and US Gold ones. Since then, been buying the Fusion magazine which is a great little light read every couple of months. And I see with the new ZZap annual you get a special edition Fusion magazine dedicated to C64 :)

They are just fabulous to deal with- friendly, professional, and top quality.

Lots of great content lined up for this year, including an Andrew Braybrook interview, reviews of many recent games and a large tips section (in association with www.freeze64.com )

Thanks for that, yes, I don't think I will be passing this up! I was just browsing through the last Zzap and thinking, yeah it'll be great to have more of the same!

Actually, wouldn't mind trying to collect a complete set of Zzaps if I could source them :)

***Edited- yep, backed it***

Yep, you now get the keyring too!

I did sign up, and got an earlybird special, which astounded me. Someone must have cancelled and I signed up at the exact right time as there was one sitting there.

For good measure I decided to go and get the 2019 Crash annual, seeing I hadn't opted to buy the second one at the time.

:lol: True! At the end of the day, they are great reads, very good value, and produced to a high quality. I have the space so why the hell not?! :)
