JContheCover(s) - News of the World Magazines 1985 - 1988

As mentioned in yesterday's post, in the 80's the News of the World newspaper regularly featured Joan on the cover of their magazine supplement, "Sunday". Yesterday, I featured the first in my collection, from 1984 - here are the other 5 as a tribute to the newspaper.

This first one from July 1985 was to promote the new mini series, Sins that Joan was producing and starring in. It featured an adaptation of the book by Judith Gould with pictures of Joan and the cast throughout.
The June 8, 1986 issue featured Joan as Madame Du Pompadour her choice of costume for the Masquerade party where Alexis brings Ben Carrington (Christopher Cazenove) back to Denver (Dynasty Season 6).
It was back to the mini series for the August 10, 1986 issue of the magazine, and the picture of Joan from Monte Carlo based on the novel by Stephen Sheppard. Inside was a 2 page article with pictures from the production.
The 1987 issue, dated February 8 featured an article about Joan's daughter Katy and her then divorce from husband number 4 - Peter Holm.
The last issue that I have in my collection was from November 1988 and featured Joan on the cover in Dynasty scenes with co-star Michael Nader (Dex Dexter). Inside a 1 1/2 page article, "I've Spent All My Life Trying to Please Men" about her marriages and then news and pictures from a forthcoming episode of Dynasty.

Thank you News of the World for some great covers of Joan over the years.
