Thanks a bunch, brundlefly.

There was a time I was obsessed with Oz & these issues (even photocopied reproductions of same) were rarer than hen's teeth. To have them all (or almost all) available in one place like this is almost too much - as well as being a poignant reminder to me of just how amazing the internet really is.

fyi, torrents of the complete MAD are floating around.

Sadly, I'm old enough to have owned most of them when they first came out. The first one I ever bought was the one with the Robert Crumb Honeybunch.

Sadly, I never kept any. I say sadly, because even in the early seventies, Schoolkids Oz sold for upwards of £50. Today it must be worth an absolute fortune.

I used to have to go to microfilm for some of these... Thankyou.

Oh, and if any of you are in Australia and want to see these in the original paper version, try a university library. Adelaide Uni, at least, has all of the Australian ones in its special collection (although the UK ones are in microfilm).
