Predominantly an EC fanzine, with articles about EC freelancers, Kurtzman pre-war comics, and the EC Picture Story series. Also features a reprint (from black-&-white stats) of Steve Ditko’s 5-page story "Stretching Things,” from Fantastic Fears #5 (1954), one of Ditko’s first published strips, a Meteor Murphy story by Basil Wolverton, and more.
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.
