They don't seem to be on Twitter to tag, but if you're in Nottingham and love pizza, don't miss Pizzamisu. Possibly the best pizza I've had outside Italy.

An excellent article that unravels some of the mystery surrounding the near-mythical Ultimate Play The Game.

I've always thought that Roxy's Avalon artwork has an early-80's-text-adventure box art vibe.

As with all Oli’s work, this is an outstanding picture by a great artist. Technically brilliant and emotionally powerful, it's gruesome, shocking and frightening, and – like ZZAP! itself - was like nothing else on the newsagent’s shelves. (1/3)

It illustrates ‘Theatre Europe’, issue 2’s nuclear-war-themed Gold Medal game, but there’s more to it than that. It’s a powerful statement about the effects of nuclear war – the threat of which was very real in the mid-80s. (2/3)

The ripped-open gas mask, the mutilated face with its melting flesh, the giant bomb blast and mushroom cloud reflected in the gasmask’s eyepiece, convey a fierce anti-war message that captures not only the game but also the paranoia of the age. An incredible piece of art. (3/3)
