Remember Dynamite Magazine for kids?
Anyone besides me remember Dynamite magazine for kids by Scholastic? I came across some old issues in a used bookstore and they really brought back memories. I simply had to pick up the one below because of my love for all things Estrada (Dynamite #64, September 1979). I did some research on the magazine and was surprised to find out how long it ran – 1974-1992. Seriously? I had no idea it ran until 1992. I thought it was a late-70s/early-80s phenomena. Additionally, it was founded by Jenette Kahn who later went on to be the President and Editor-in-Chief of DC Comics. Wow, she was really connected to children’s entertainment back then. She’s responsible for several things I fondly remember.
When I opened the magazine, my mind was completely blown as I came across the Dynamite Duo. This was something I’d totally forgotten, and yet had loved as a child. The adventures of Nightglider and Dawnstar! After seeing this, I can now recall they had magic rings, but that’s about it. What a blast from the past!
There isn’t a lot out there about Dynamite, but you can find some information on Wikipedia.
