1978: FUTURE MAGAZINE Issue 8 (Starlog)

From February 1979 (and the Random Scans file): The 8th issue of early STARLOG spin-off FUTURE, boasting a SUPERMAN THE MOVIE cover.  

FUTURE, launched in April 1978, was an odd mix of serious science and Starlog's traditional media coverage.  Presumably the magazine for the thinking fan and scientists who liked to settle down and watch Battlestar Galactica on a Sunday night.  This was the last issue to appear under the original title.  From the next issue, the masthead was subtly amended to become FUTURE LIFE.  

The mag surprisingly plodded on for an impressive 31 issues through to December 1981.
