Almost Gone! Our Highest Recommendation. By Roger Hill. Remember the days of fabulous, high quality fanzines like Squa Tront, filled with fascinating new information about EC artists, and never-before-seen artwork? Well, look no more, long-time fan Roger Hill brings it all back in another great issue. Previously unpublished Wally Wood (from his wartime years), Frank Frazetta (a look at ALL his newspaper strips), a wonderful look at the Art of EC Comics Exhibit's opening night, the REAL story (and Pogo art) behind Wood leaving Mad, the amazing Wood Studio diorama...and much more.

Remember the days of fabulous, high quality fanzines like Squa Tront, filled with fascinating new information about EC artists, and never-before-seen artwork? Well, look no more, long-time fan Roger Hill brings it all back in another great issue. Previously unpublished Wally Wood (from his wartime years), Frank Frazetta (a look at ALL his newspaper strips), a wonderful look at the Art of EC Comics Exhibit's opening night, the REAL story (and Pogo art) behind Wood leaving Mad, the amazing Wood Studio diorama...and much more.

Joe Orlando’s rare Monster Print Putty packaging and the revival of EC, Jerry Weist & Roger's meeting with Forry Ackerman when the editor of Famous Monsters did a cross-country tour to meet fans...in 1963! Complete with photos, and repros of Jerry's first fanzine, pre- Squa Tront. A centerforld in full color reveals a prehistoric painting by Burian, but as it turns out, it was a joke on Al Williamson and it's drawn by none other than Reed Crandall.

The full color back cover is a rare Wally Wood piece (shown here) which appeared in the pulp magazine Planet Stories. Here it is finally colored by the talented Phil Normand, who did the coloring on the Frazetta Tarzan and the Castaways reimagined dust jacket (which we handle) and also the Crandall plates in the new John Carter of Mars.

The Sid Check piece on the inside front cover at first looks like a Williamson/Frazetta unpublished page from an EC, but it's a lost Check work seen here for the first time.

An early EC fan tells a wonderful story of getting caught with a copy of Weird Science at school in the fifties...and his hip teacher proceeded to read the entire issue to the class, complete with different voices for the characters. It's one of the most amazing stories ever.

And then there's the Wally Wood Studio diorama! OH MY GOODNESS. I saw this first at the OAF Oklahoma show in 2016; here is the story of its unveiling at the Schnitzer Museum exhibit, Aliens, Monsters and Madmen: The Art of EC Comics. It was a jaw-dropping experince for me at OAF, and one for a host of EC fans at the exhibit. This is the most amazing homage to an EC artist ever, an authentic (and perhaps slightly romanticized) capture of Wally Wood's EC-era studio, right down the all the pages of "My World" on his drawing board, and back issues of Avon's Out of This World and& Flying Saucers, and hundreds of other details.

If we did this right, additional scans with this will show you my original pictures of the diorama from the OAF show.

It's been three years or so, but here we are treated to a new issue of this fan's fanzine, a must-have item for anyone who loves EC Comics or the artists who worked at EC.
