The covers in the 1970s were paintings by Arnaldo Putzu, an Italian working in London who had created many cinema posters in the 1960s, including designs for the Carry On films.Its main feature however was the many comic strips of the favourite children's television programmes, all of which were being shown on the ITV network at the time.This usually comprised interview articles and pull-out pin-ups of the top acts of the day, from ABBA and the Bay City Rollers in the 1970s to Adam and the Ants and Bros in the 1980s.Picture strips on pop groups at first featured life stories on ABBA and The Beatles (among others) and went on to become original adventures stories for groups such as Madness and Bucks Fizz.By the late 1980s, the comic was struggling to compete with glossier teen magazines and sales were dropping.

Heartthrob Barry Sheene seemed to be featured a lot, although a high spot was obviously on 18 June 1977, when diminutive (read: shortarse) singer Leo Sayer got his own colour pin-up.But above all I remember the posters of television, film and pop stars; in particular the giant pull-out collection of the boys from a-ha.In a last attempt to stay relevant the editorial team started pitching to a younger market by adding plenty of comic strips such as Garfield and Scooby Doo, as well as giving information on various topics in bite-size fact files.Well, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, but it really did feel like the grinning faces of Gary, Mark, Howard, Jason and Robbie were everywhere you looked back then.I'm amazed that 'Look-In' survived as long as it did- I think that in the end it had too many rivals, although it held it's own against it's main early '80s competitor 'No. LOOK IN Magazine Back Issues.
