Google has finally uploaded our back issues
, which stretch all the way back to our debut on October 26, 1955
, online. (It cost five cents then; it costs you nothing now. Vive le Internet!) Interestingly, Google's news blog announcement links to Lester Bangs' classic Iggy story, "Blowtorch in Bondage."
You can read that whole issue
-- the one pictured, from March 28, 1977, and apparently featuring Spinal Tap -- and hundreds of others. Read long-unseen Feiffer cartoons
and Andrew Sarris' profile of Herve Villechaise
! See us denounce Carmine DeSapio
! Get mad at our coverage of ancient history as well as of current events! Happy hunting.
