Knight Rider is Dynamite (and meet a real live unicorn!)

Dynamite knight Rider

Browsing around Flickr, I came across the picture above and was instantly drawn to one of the cover headlines:

Meet a Real Live Unicorn!

It wasn’t enough that they had David Hasselhoff siting on K.I.T.T., giving his thumbs-up to a previous issue. No, the way to really make sales is by offering readers the chance to meet fictitious beasts whilst buttering them up with a FREE Unicorn poster and FREE Stickers!

It has to be said, I’m in awe of Dynamite magazine. Find more magazine covers here.

  1. Max Power says:

    I guess that was the “unicorn” Ringling Bros was flogging in their circus in the 1980s.

  2. This is one of four issues I have a complete scan of thanks to the Interwebs. I actually tweeted Scholastic a couple weeks ago asking if they had Dynamite in the archives and they asked if I meant some recent mag they do called Dynamath or something similar. I told them no, I’m old, I meant the original Dynamite.

    Their reply:
    Thanks for your suggestion; we’ll be sure to share it with our Classroom Magazines group! Is there a certain article/issue you’re interested in? If so, please DM/Follow us with the info & we’ll see what we can do!

    I said I was hoping they could do reprints of them, possibly using Kickstarter or something like it. And that was the, seemingly, end of it.
