1975 No.38 and the 1983 Annual (full issues)...

Here we present (in my opinion) the best ever issue of Look-in, an amazing Arnaldo montage of Space: 1999 on the cover, a strip and feature inside, a new quiz on my favourite ever subject - music, and a Bay City Rollers poster, at the time, brownie points for me as it was another addition to my sisters already huge BCR collection...it just dosen't get any better than this issue, it is still my favourite cover to this day.  To go with that, Mike from the amazing Mag-a-Zone site has sent me scans of the 1983 Annual, so a big thanks to him for that...
