100th Issue of SkyNews

Posted by Scott On October - 25 - 2011

The Nov/Dec 2011 issue of SkyNews magazine is a celebration of a major milestone for the outstanding Canadian astronomy magazine.

This issue includes a FREE Wall Calendar premium, which is flagged boldly in the “skybar” above the logo.

The bold type treatment leaves no doubt that this is indeed a “collectors issue”.

Celebrating an important milestone by giving readers the “biggest issue” ever will also result in big newsstands sales too.  Thickness matters.

The issue is hard to miss at Chapters, where it has received outstanding display.
