LEGO Mania Magazine: A Look Back to Twenty Years Ago! (Part VI)

I've been having a good time reliving my childhood by going through page-by-page the inaugural issue of the LEGO Mania Magazine (Winter 1994).  In the last post for the magazine, I showed off some user creations that LEGO decided to feature in their magazine.  While that concept isn't terribly interesting now with the proliferation of the internet (and many, many LEGO-centric blogs such as this one), it was a neat concept back in the middle of the 1990s!

Moving on to pages 10 and 11, we see that LEGO has included a comic of sorts in their magazine (as do many magazines aimed squarely at kids).  LEGO wasn't terribly creative in their name of the comic though calling it simply "The Adventures of the LEGO Maniac."

You might need to click on the images to make them a bit easier to read...
All things considered, the comic isn't the worst I've ever seen...and I do like that it fits in with the theme of the issue (the Islanders got the starring role of the first issue of LEGO Mania Magazine).

You might have noticed the top of the page 11 featured the next step of the "flip n' build" the has been prevalent throughout the issue.  Have you figured out what LEGO is teaching you to build yet?  If it helps, there is only one more step to go!
