Ever since I saw my first issue of the now-defunct magazine called ARGOSY a number of years ago, I felt it would have been a publication the Zodiac would have read on a regular basis.

For those of you unfamiliar with ARGOSY, it was aimed at 30-something men with heavy emphasis on adventure, guns, crime, guns, fantasy, guns, hunting, guns, cars, guns, etc. You get the point.

Recently I purchased a lot of 20 issues ranging from late 1967 through 1971. I figured I'd be able to spot possible Zodiac influences, and I believe I have.

Here's the cover of the September 1968 issue:

COVER

Inside is a full-page ad for Winchester Western Super X ammo, just as the Zodiac used:

One of the feature stories was about the mafia and included this full-page picture of a hooded man:

Hood

I have yet to thoroughly scrutinize each issue, but I have a feeling I'll find more interesting possibilities.

Tom, it wouldn't surprise me. In fact, this, or something like it, may have been the source of his weapons.

Incidentally, would something like this count?

You forgot to mention Yeti's and Sasquatches.

I've still got some issues stuck away somewhere, as well as some of it's competitors, True and Saga.

Is that Joe Valachi going in to his testimony before the Senate?

That hood looks like cloth, and not a paper bag with shoe polish on it.

Speaking of Yeti I think I remember reading an article about the Patterson-Gimlin film in an Argosy magazine way back when.

I had an Argosy with the Minnesota Iceman. I miss those old magazines!

For those of you out there who miss Argosy, and love topics like the Minnesota Iceman, Yeti, psychology, unexplained coincidents, and all things weird, tempered with a brilliant pragmatism and skeptical eye... you've gotta check out "Fortean Times", an UK magazine. I cannot recommend it highly enough!
