DESCRIPTION
From Wikipedia: Antic was the name of a home computer magazine devoted to the Atari 8-bit computer line (Atari 400/800 and compatibles). Its ISSN is 0113-1141. It took its name from the ANTIC chip which produced the Atari line's graphics. The first issue was published in April 1982. While it began as a bimonthly magazine, within a year it had gone monthly. The last issue was in June/July 1990. All told, 88 issues were published. A "Best of" book was also published. Its main rival in the United States was ANALOG Computing, another long-lived magazine devoted to the Atari 8-bit line. A lesser rival was the short lived Hi-Res Magazine. In 1986, Antic spun off STart Magazine, a sister publication aimed at the Atari ST line. The daughter magazine would outlive its parent by about a year. When Antic ended, it continued as a section of STart, appearing in six more issues.

This collection of ANTIC scans as well as the metadata/descriptions associated with them come from the Classic Computing Magazine Archive and its Antic index.
