Fantasy Trader Cover Model of ‘79

Fantasy Trader 41 (October 1979)

Where “comics and science fiction lives!”

This little UK fanzine proved to be quite the doozy to track down. After looking for a number of years. I was fortunate to find it on eBay for a reasonable price.

The cover was advertised to be illustrated by the notable, Terry Moore (Strangers in Paradise, Rachel Rising, etc) but it turns out, he didn’t do it. Terry told me so. See below.

Even though a different Terry drew the cover, I was fortunate enough to have a Twitter interaction with THE Terry Moore. Pretty cool! Although Swamp Thing is featured on the cover of Fantasy Trader, the fanzine does not reference nor does it mention Swampy within. Below are the interior pages of the zine.
