Here is second part of Masquerader #4, with some wonderful artwork by Richard "Grass" Green. Grass had a very fluid style and was probably the most polished of the first fan artists. There is also more art by Biljo White, and even some illustrations by yours truly. One of the first unfortunate chores I had as an editor was to take a critical look at my art at the time and limit the amount that I could contribute to the zine until I dramatically improved. Fortunately, by the fourth issues I had made some steps forward. 

Also of interest in this issue was the long article by Richard C. West on Sax Rohmer's Dr. Fu Manchu, which was not strictly comicbook material. Hey, it was my fanzine and that's what I wanted to read about.

Here's a blast from the (way back) past. My introduction to comics really happened as a teenage when I produced one of the very first comicbook fanzines, Masquerader. Here is issue #4 from 1963. My apologies for the splotchiness of the printing, but that was what you lived with at the time; technology has come a long way. And the "print" life of a spirit duplicator master page was about 175-300 copies...less if you used a color other than the basic purple. 

The great thing about doing fanzines was at the tender age was that I met virtually everyone I was going to work with in comics at the tender age of 15....and all of this through correspondence via the U.S. mail.

The art in Donnybrook Boys was  done by my late friend Ronn Foss, who was arguably the best fan artist of the time. And the other art was by "Cap't" Biljo White, another of the early greats in the field.

Into the Past PT. 10

This week starts the last Lori Lovecraft story, Into the Past. When I originally did the book even though it was going to be printed in black and white, I did a full color job and simply converted it down to black and white images.  Since I have the capability to publish them in color now I'm printing the color pages in the book and the majority of the story that was done in black and white. This story started out as a two parter published in two issues of a comic. When the work was compiled a longer, third chapter was added to wrap up all the loose ends.

Well folks, that's the last of the Lori Lovecraft stories...though we still manage to get out some Lori pinups from time to time. And who knows, maybe there still is another Lori story or two down the line.

Next week, another feature begins at Vozcomix!!!  Be there!
