COMICS FORUM #1
(Journal of the Society for Strip Illustration)
By Guy Lawley and Steve Whitaker - 1992
Cover by Matt Brooker
Lots of people to thank for these issues; Guy Lawley, Will Morgan, Nevs Coleman and Dave Windett, gentlemen all.
A packed first issue this, with a Long interview with Neil Gaiman. a fine article by Ron Tiner, and an exploration of the History of the S,S,I.
Would love to know if 'The Longest Comic Strip in the World' (created to support the London Cartoon Centre) ever did get collected into book form?
FANTASY ADVERTISER #55
By Dez Skinn (April 1975)
Cover and Stan Lee illustration by Bryan Talbot (Nemesis the Warlock, The Sandman, Dotter of Her Father's Eyes, etc.)
An interesting interview with Stan Lee (on one of his visits to the U.K. ), conducted by New Musical Express Journalist, Charles Murray.
EUREKA Vol.2 Number 1
By Dez Skinn (1971)
Cover by Frank Bellamy
A couple of lovely, early strips with art by Dave Gibbons. Includes a letter from Fredric Wertham (Boo! Hiss!, lol), and an article on EC Comics by Haydn Paul.
Many thanks to Ron Tiner for his scanning of this issue.
ARKEN SWORD #15
By Paul Duncan (1985)
A lovely cover, and a huge 20 page interview with Ian Gibson (his first I think). As well as his early and 2000 AD strips, Ian talks about working with Steve Parkhouse on stuff for ORPHEUS, which I'm guessing was for the second issue, that never saw the light of day.
When I was posting the zines within the site itself, I needed to keep the file size down to under 10 Meg. Now that I'm working through 'My Drive' I can afford to present them at a higher quality setting.
As and when I get the time, I hope to post higher quality versions of zines already on line.
First up is ORPHEUS #1, which follows on nicely from ASPECT.
ASPECT #2 - 1970
Editor - Steve Moore
Cover by Jim Baikie
Wonderfully surreal 'Tales of Hyperborea' Strip by Steve Parkhouse and Barry Smth (with a great homage to Kirby on the 'Paradox Man' section). Lovely artwork from Steve Parkhouse and Alan Hunter, too.
Many thanks to Ron Tiner for this lovely Christmas present.
