Time Capsule: Magazine covers from January 1969

Here's how the newsstand looked this month 50 years ago. Stay tuned this week for a look at comic book covers from January 1969, too!

Welcome back and Happy New Year!

Pop Culture Safari is back after a brief Christmas break. Hope it was refreshing for all of you.

We hope you'll continue to join us daily for posts on anything that happens to catch our fancy, whether it's classic comic art, "video finds," news, reviews and our pick of new comics, book and music new releases.

We'll also continue our "Time Capsule" entries - this year focusing on the pop culture of 1969.

One note: Those of you who've been following us on Facebook and Twitter may've noticed those streams have dried up. That's how they'll stay for the foreseeable future. Not only have both of these outlets proven themselves as generally disreputable in the past year, along with indifferent to the privacy of their users, I believe they've made our society not better, but worse. So, the hell with them. I'd rather have fewer regular viewers than continue posting via these outlets.

If you want updates on what's going on here, please sign up for email updates via the form in the righthand column. I won't do a thing with your address. You'll just get updates until you elect to stop them.

Thank you to the many regular visitors to this site. Glad you're still along for the ride. And, to anyone new, welcome here, too. Hope you enjoy it.

Happy 2019! (and 1969!)
