Fandom Feature 1

Fandom Feature 1 (1982)

I’ve been keeping an eye out for this book for a little while now and it arrived in the mail yesterday from mycomicshop.com. Those are some mighty fine folks selling mighty fine books.

The debut issue of Fandom Feature features a little Swamp Thing article related to the launch of series two. It also contains a whole lot of Superman, including an interview with Curt Swan. I love these kinds of fanzines and the art that typically comes with them.

The zine kicks off with a Silver Surfer illustration by George Perez. I was recently contacted by his website, George-Perez.net, for a copy of the image to use on his site. I’ll be sure to let everyone know when it’s online.

The article mentions Swamp Thing being  Yeates’ “first big assignment” in comics. Yeates goes in depth on his experience on Saga in the most recent issue of Back Issue #92, out this month.
