  • Your Commodore (November 1986)

    Source: Your Commodore – Issue Number 26 – November 1986



    Your Commodore was one of a number of Commodore specific magazines published in the U.K. It focused on Commodore’s various 8-bit computers, primarily the Commodore 64. However, the November 1986 issue’s cover features the “new” Plus/4 and C-16 which ended up being wildly unpopular. One step forward and two steps back I would say, plus they were incompatible with the C-64. This issue includes:

    Info (or .info) was a magazine published for Commodore computers. Originally it covered the Commodore 64 but expanded to cover the Commodore 128 and Amiga later on. It was unique in that it was published using Commodore 8-bit and then Amiga computers. The September 1988 issue includes:
