My first issue of SOD was the 25th anniversary of GH issue. Which i got from my neighborhood supermarket. I only started watching soaps a couple of years before. SOD and the other soap mags were a great resource. In the a pre-internet world of the late 1980's. I loved all the articles . My favorite features were Remember When and Questions. There i learned off older stories and characters. Also loved all the creative covers. Over the years SOD became an overpriced shell of its former self. Which i rarely saw on sale in places like CVS and Duane Reade. Where they were afraid to properly critique any of the soaps.
