#ThrowbackThursday: Flip through GL's covers from 1994 and 1995

Have you heard? GL's turning the big 2-0 this year! Before we bust out the streamers and nom on the triple-decker cake, we're having a major blast-from-the-past moment. Take a walk down memory lane with us each Thursday as we dig through our scrapbook of our throwback issues, starting with our very first cover and leading up to our 20th anniversary issue reveal on July 11 (psst! This is where you mark your calendars). What can we say? We're sentimentals like that.
This week we're kicking off this nostalgia-fest with not one but two year's worth of covers, including with our very issue ever. Aww, come see how much we've grown!
