The fanzine is a product of State College, Pennsylvania. I am assuming the student run fanzine was made up of Penn State students, with the “Stone Lion” referring to their Nittany Lion mascot.

the back cover features a Wrightson inspired Swampy drawing, similar to a certain panel in issue 1 (series 1).

I love the purple ink from the mimeograph.

The details (above)

the book mentions the State College Comic Swap quite a bit. After a quick search, I was happy to find out that the swap is still open.

The book has some fun articles and information. They cite Comic Reader and The Buyers Guide.

This full page New Gods illustration is terrific. Word on the street is, artist Marc Wagner is getting this Darkseid illustration tattooed on his body, permanently.
