I meant a photo shoot on the cover. That was the last one I remember before I stopped buying. Then by the time I looked again, around 2006 or so, it was all mash-up covers all the time. Sadly even those look better than that chicken scratch now.

Guiding Light had cover stories in SOD up until the end of 2002. I remember the last time they were ever the sole soap featured was in December 2002 when it was 3 couples: Phillip/Olivia, Michelle/Danny, and Gus/Harley.

 

In Fall 1997, they had one of Phillip/Harley and Michelle/Jesse on the cover together. In 1998, they had one with Josh/Reva/Annie, another one with Josh/Reva/Reva Clone, then in the fall for sweeps they had a GL one with multiple screenshots featured. 1999 had a couple covers of Michelle/Danny, Reva/Josh/Richard, etc.... In 2000, they started doing those covers where 2 soaps were featured alot, and GL had a couple shared covers with DAYS (usually Richard/Cassie). Richard & Cassie got their own cover shot when they got married in Summer 2000. Then in 2001 there was one of Phillip/Harley/Rick.

 

I have no idea WHY I remember this random stuff.

Because Guiding Light is BURNED INTO OUR BRAINS.

 

Not literally.

I had no idea!!! Thanks for sharing OP! I bought the commemorative issue of #AMC for my guy's late Mom at the time. She LOVED it. She hid it under her bed in case the nurses wanted it. LOL! Well, not LOL, but she was sassy. Imagine that. ;-) Looking forward to paying People $12 for something they rarely covered/my memories! ;-) But I will...lol!

Actually I think that cover looks rather boring

 

Why put an image of KS by herself with the caption "Young Love"? Is she pleasuring herself?

 

Sonny and Brenda get "Wild Passion" yet they pick such a static and bland pic. Them kissing on the beach is very memorable and would have embodied that better

 

Antonio's picture is highly out of place. It doesnt seem to quite fit and sticks out

Luke & Laura, Duke & Anna and Sonny & Brenda belong on the cover but Maxie and Jagger? It's insane that they are on the cover.  There are so many other characters I would have put on the cover as well.  What about Steve Hardy?  And Robert & Holly and Frisco & Felicia?   And the pics aren't that good.  Oh well.  It could have been so much better IMO.

I love it. Ll center as they should be. Two great super couples from two decades in duke/Anna & sonny/Brenda. Man candy down at the side and I love how Maxie is popping up out of Laura vail lol. As I said It really does rep the last 3 decades. Ill take it over a mash up of just 80s couples. And as said also, while id love some history from pre-ll gh days that was never going to happen.

I wonder what the inside of the magazine will be like.  I hope they do justice to all of the decades and a good chunk of the characters.
