Crash 2018 Annual - An upcoming Kickstarter revival of the classic ZX Spectrum Crash magazine


You've probably heard the name many times ' Chris Wilkins ' , a highly respected retro head who has launched countless retro gaming books such as The History of Ocean Software, The Story of the Commodore 64 in Pixels, The Story of the Oliver Twins and The Story of the ZX Spectrum in Pixels. But now after many Kickstarter successes, he is about to launch possibly the greatest of them all, The Crash 2018 Annual; A revival of the classic ZX Spectrum Crash magazine, wrapped up in the guise of a Christmas annual, with a brand new Oliver Frey Christmas cover. To coincide with this amazing news, we have an exclusive first look at the upcoming Kickstarter, with a video to show you before anyone else by Jeremy Wood and music by Allister Brimble


If you've never heard of Crash, which you probably would've done as a ZX Spectrum gamer. It was an incredible gaming packed magazine dedicated to the ZX Spectrum, which was first launched in 1983 by Roger Kean, Oliver Frey and Franco Frey as a mail order software catalogue and then launched as a proper magazine in February 1984, published by Newsfield Publications Ltd and then by Europress. 


This latest Kickstarter will probably take the ZX Spectrum world by storm, as Crash is back as its very own annual as the 99th issue release since the final issue number 98 was actually last sold in 1992. This annual will be edited by Roger Kean, cover art by the amazing Oliver Frey, playing tips by Nick Roberts, an adventure trail by Stuart Williams and will also include a Jetman comic strip by both Oliver Frey and Roger Kean, with further contributions by many others that have yet to be announced. As for any other details Chris has mentioned, it will be 112 pages in full colour for the very first time as a hardback with reviews and much much more. 

So look out for this one, the Crash 2018 is going to blow your ZX Speccy mind come 21st July at 9.30am!
