Battle of the Pacific

Posted by Scott On September - 16 - 2016

The Winter 2016 SIP from the Legion Magazine is scheduled to hit newsstands on November 7th, 2016.

The Battle of the Pacific SIP retails for $14.95.

Look for promotions at Chapters/Indigo, Loblaws, Shoppers Drug Mart, and Wal Mart.

Art Director Jason Duprau chose an iconic image of the USS Arizona, and says:

“We decided to use this image, because this was part of the event (the attack on Pearl Harbour) which drew Canada into the Pacific War.”

A clip from the magazine caption reads:  The USS Arizona minutes after it was hit by Japanese bombs at Pearl Harbor. The Arizona’s fuel tanks and powder magazine were full, resulting in a spectacular explosion. It sank in nine minutes.

The cover is full of drama, energy and feeling.  Bold Header and use of red pops on the white background. Good use of the left hand real estate  for supporting hooks.  Strong starburst with premium maps.
