Whatever I say about this fanzine I'm goi ng to be accused of bias. Why? Well, if you have not already realised, I am the editor of CPC Domain! This puts me in a bit of a spot so I am going to stick with telling you what the 'zine contains and refrain from comments like even better than ACU, get it now!
Like Print-Out, CPCD concentrates on the serious side of the CPC. In particular, PD software features highly with the fanzine being run alongside the Scull software library. Commercial software creeps in too with both Prototype and Labelmaker being reviewed in issue 3.
Regular articles include News, CPCD first informed of the ACU changes in June this year with full details in the August issue (4); Adventuring, Simon Avery brings regular tips and news from the adventure circle; Comm-Line, the beginners guide to comms; Post-bag, at least six pages of letters every month; On-Display, regular review of PD clip-art; and Spotlight, all the latest disks in the Scull SL.
Reviews vary widely from month to month. Issue 4 reviews CRR, an off-line mail reader for comms, and compares Pagemaker Deluxe and Advanced Desktop Publisher, the two budget DPTs. Reviews in issue 5 include the latest public domain DTP, Tiny Desktop Publisher.
CPC Domain is not produced on a CPC but on an Atari ST with the latest Laserquality bubble-jet printer. Even if I do say so myself, this gives the magazine the 'look' of a glossy. With a free Desktop Publisher (Pagemaker Deluxe) for all subscribers, readership is growing rapidly. Oops, I think I've started to hype, time to move on...
