Your New Favorite Retro Magazine
Retro nostalgia fans rejoice! ‘Retrofied’ is a new quarterly magazine created to celebrate the pop culture you grew up with. From TV, toys, books, movies, fashion, food, video games and more, we’ve got you covered!
For our amazing 8th issue, we get absolutely slimed as we remember the “gross-out” craze of the ’80s and ’90s and celebrate when we all embraced a kid-friendly form of counter culture. A gag-inducing feast of food, toys, video games, movies, wrestling matches, rock n’ roll moments, and more, you’ll find this issue a disgusting delight!
Read the Latest from Retrofied
The Utter Joy That Is ‘Superman ’78’
Writer Robert Venditti and Artist Wilfredo Torres have produced a love letter to Richard Donner’s 1978 blockbuster in their six-part series ‘Superman ’78.’
Nostalgia’s Revenge: Juice Bomb! – My Newfound Fascination with Pogs
Whether viewed as a momentary craze and product solely of its time or a lasting legacy of the power of exploitation, the lure and collectability of Pogs lingers on to this day.
The Blame Game: ‘Home Alone’ Revisited
‘Home Alone’ reminds us if you’re a mother, everything is your fault. And it’s still mothers who assume the heaviest load, especially now.
Skating Into the Past
If there was one final mercy extended to customers it was that we were told when Skate Country would be closing. What person wouldn’t want to spend just a few more minutes with a dying loved one?
Nostalgia’s Revenge: Foundation and Empire…and Robots!
As lovers of movies like Star Wars and Alien and original series like Lost in Space, I think we owe it to ourselves to pay a visit to where it all began: Isaac Asimov’s ‘Foundation.’
Frightening Females: The Women Writers Who Made Point Horror Iconic
It was a safe way to be scared. It transported the reader to a world of suspense and danger, yet that world was still secure. It was a much more innocent time for kids. ‘Point Horror’ fears were always conquered and understood in the end.
