STAR magazine # 5 June


June 1973- the fifth issue of the notorious Star Magazine, undoubtedly the rarest teen magazine of the 70s. Fantastic issue with the highest glitter rock / groupie content yet! Remember that this magazine was selling in grocery stores parallel to Petersen's other teen-girl mag Teen, and be amazed. Glammed-out Star Girl Karen Umphrey on the cover, sweet full-page color photo of Shray Mecham and Frankenstein reading Star together (inspired by the New York Dolls' "Frankenstein"?). Five-page David Bowie article with Cherry Vanilla interviewed about DB and Bowie hanging out with Star Girl Patty Clark. Utterly insane, raunchy four-page "Sunset Strip Groupies" article with photos and interview with Sable Starr and Queenie telling how to pick up rock stars, and neglecting to mention their underage status!

Two-page Beatles-themed "Groupies" comic set in Rodney's English Disco and actually featuring a cartoon Rodney Bingenheimer, also a centerfold Beatles cartoon poster and "Polly Platforms" cartoon, all by Joe Petagno. Short story: "Chain Gang High School." Great posed photos of platform-shod Superdudes offering flowers and apples to disdainful Foxes, accompanying "Guys Who'll Use You" and "Get Him Back- On His Knees!" Patty Clark on a dream date with pop genius Michael Lloyd, "Olga Korbut Goes Foxy," "Nose-Job Diary," fashion spread on cultivating "The Black Foxy Lady Look," lots more. 74 pages
