Freddie Mercury on the cover of Blitz
Freddie Mercury is the cover of the Blitz number 42, published in 1985.
Inside the magazine are articles featuring Manowar, Scritti Politti and the film “Electric Dreams“.
I remember buying the first magazines during my childhood. I used to spend my summer holidays in the countryside, in Alentejo with my grandparents. There was a lot of free time, and some of it was spent reading. Reading lots of animations, encyclopedias of general culture, and magazines.
But it was during my adolescence that I religiously followed my first publication, the Blitz newspaper, every week. Every Tuesday before 8 a.m., I would take the newspaper to school. I would impatiently wait for the breaks to devour all the information that was shown to me. It was me, and many others, a legion of Blitz readers.
