Issue devoted to artist and writer Bruce Jones, featuring an auto-bio by Jones, and three strips by Jones, including two featuring Tarzan.
Highlights of this issue are the cover and 2-page color strip by Richard Corben, and an article about DC’s Korak, Son of Tarzan comic of the 1970s by John Pocsik.
Two printings differ from one another in numerous ways. While the contents are essentially the same, they’re re-arranged slightly, with different covers. The Thunda reprint in the 1st printing is half-toned from the original comic, while in the 2nd printing the story is reproduced from either stats or the original art.
The indicia lists “Attezarf” as the publisher, but the second issue explains how Frazetta #1 & 2 came to be, and reveals Vernell Coriell and Bob Barrett to be the primary forces behind their publication.
The 1st printing has a $2.00 cover price.
The 2nd printing has a $2.50 cover price.
This 2nd issue of Frazetta was published as The Burroughs Bulletin #29, and as such, is a much more full-blooded fanzine with articles by Bob Barrett and Frank Frazetta himself. Also, a Thunda reprint.
News of Russ Manning taking over the art for Gold Key's Tarzan of the Apes.

Nickelodeon took the place of Trumpet after Tom Reamy became embroiled in a publishing deal with Nostalgia Inc. that didn’t turn out as he had hoped or been led to believe. Reamy shared editing and publishing duties with Ken Keller, who would go on to publish Trumpet #12 in 1981, in an effort to resurrect the title.
Features include an interview with Frederick Pohl.
Letters page includes letters from Doug Potter, Kenneth Smith, and Andrew Porter.
Following the death of Tom Reamy in 1977, Trumpet #12 was published by Ken Keller in an effort to resurrect the title. Reamy had followed Trumpet #11 (1974) with Nickelodeon #1 (1975) and Nickelodeon #2 (1976) with co-editor/co-publisher Keller after becoming embroiled in a publishing deal with Nostalgia Inc. that didn’t turn out as he had hoped or been led to believe. Trumpet #12 would be the final issue.
