If you’re a fan of fanzines, then you’ve got to check out Ken Meyer, Jr.’s monthly column Ink Stains. Each month Ken (who is an amazing artist) posts… well, let’s let Ken explain…
I have a collection of over 200 fanzines from the 60’s-80’s that I plan to scan and talk about, one at a time. I hope to have some of the participants answer a few questions. Many of those participants are established comics professionals now, while some have gone on to other things. I will show a few snippets from each zine and give you a link to download a pdf of the whole thing, which I hope all of you will do!
For Ink Stains 71, Ken took a look at Comic Crusader 5 and 6 from 1969 from Editor and Publisher: Martin L. Greim.
Comic Crusader 5 and 6 feature –
- Covers by Steranko
- Lots of fan art and articles
- Comic story by Martin Greim
- Early art by Dennis Fugitake
- Steve Ditko’s Mr. A comic story
- …and more!
The Steranko pieces make these issues worthy for me even if as Ken points out, it appears that someone else (Greim?) inked the cover to #5.
Thanks to Ken Meyer, Jr. for making these available!
