Got a comic book for Christmas. Had this ad in it. Does anyone know anything about the magazine in the ad? I can't find anything on it, except for the fact it was advertised in the back of a few comic books in the early 80's.

Meant to include a pic, but it didn't upload. Give me a day or so.

Here's a picture of the ad. It doesn't sound like that great of a magazine, but it does seem strange that it's kinda fallen off the face of the planet.

It would be interesting if anyone had scans of it. I never heard or seen it BITD. Digitpress.com doesn't have any scans in their library.

No one seems to have any scans; no one seems to have mentioned it. Googling for the phrase "Arcade Action Magazine," in quotes to limit the large number of false positives, returns this thread, a comic book seller noting that it was advertised in a specific comic book, a spam site consisting of a lot of random gaming phrases strung together to create a paragraph which will occasionally pass Google's muster for very rare queries, and another spammer who scraped this thread and is using the text in some sort of re-direct scheme.

Archive.org does have an Arcade Action magazine (or magazine supplement,) but it's a British publication, and it's from the late 80's.
