Pinball Magazine # 3 Has Been Delivered

Pinball Magazine 03 Kiss special cleaned up.indd

I just received my copy of Pinball Magazine # 3.  It’s not a magazine, this thing is a book.  It has so much content and great pictures it is worth the buy.  Jonathan has done a great job on the articles, pictures, and interviews.   It comes packaged in cardboard, bubble wrap, etc.  It would take a lot of effort to destroy this book in delivery.  Thanks Jonathan for going through the extra effort to guarantee a safe delivery of the magazine. If you are into Kiss pinball present and future, then this is more of a buy for you.  I highly recommend any of the Pinball magazines.  Looking forward to the next issue.
