Welcome! This is my personal blog, where I chat about whatever takes my fancy, reminisce about comics, Old Time Radio, and science-fiction fandoms, review what I feel like reviewing, and so on. It also archives scans of some of the fanzines with which I've been involved.

Fanzine Library: Newfangles #9 (April 1968)

News included: Gold Key comics' upcoming price hike to 15 cents; correction of the preceding issue's statement that Robert Crumb's background was as a science fiction fan (he was a comics fan, of course) and other corrections; Wayne Howard made the Dean's List at Wesleyan; Russ Manning left Gold Key to do the Tarzan strip; other artist moves; "Yes, Virginia, there is a King Pack containing Flash Gordon #11, apparently sent only to subscribers. At least, no one has reported seeing it on the stands."

And check out our first "Squash That Rumor" -- the rumor being that Stan Lee had quit Marvel, joined Charlton, and was trying to lure Steve Ditko away from DC. We squashed it by calling a news source at Marvel: Stan Lee. But Flo Steinberg had left Marvel, pleading overwork (to which we had contributed, sigh).
