  • Issue #1
    1984/1994 (1978 Magazine) 1

    James Warren's answer to the successful debut of Heavy Metal magazine, 1984 features adult-oriented (and oftentimes downright sleazy) stories and art. The name change to 1994 occurred with issue number eleven, supposedly so newsstand browsers don't confuse the magazine with George Orwell's famous novel. Issue #1 includes the following stories: Last of the Really Great, All-American Joy Juice by Bill DuBay and Jose Ortiz; The Saga of Honey Dew Melons by Nicola Cuti and Esteban Maroto; Once Upon Clarissa by Bill DuBay and Alex Nino; Quick Cut by Bill DuBay and Wally Wood (story credited solely to Wood); The Saga of Xatz and Xotz by Bill DuBay and Alfredo Alcala; Bugs! by Bill DuBay and Joe Vaultz; Mutant World by Richard Corben (in color); Faster-than-Light Instellar Travel by Jim Stenstrum and Luis Bermejo; Angel! by Bill DuBay and Rudy Nebres; and Momma, Can You Hear Me? by Nicola Cuti and Alex Nino. Cover art by Richard Corben. Cover price $1.50.
