Features include reviews of fanzines and comics, and a 12-page “Inside Comix” section by Joe Brancatelli, which may have been a paid advertisement. The “Inside Comix” section bumped Part Three of the Richard Corben interview, which was re-scheduled for the following issue. Issue #6, however, was the final issue.
Includes ads for Fan Informer, Phantasmagoria, and various Middle Earth portfolios and prints.
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.
Bill G. Wilson, in Ken Meyer Jr’s Ink Stains:
“I did Panorama as a convention one-shot prior to Phil Seuling’s ’71 con – in fact, there are pics of my dad and Kenneth Smith (!) hawking copies of it at my table in The Collector 24. About the color: I was experimenting with color reproduction as I gained more experience running the ol’ A.B. Dick 360 offset press at Prince Printing, and John Fantucchio’s great cover gave me the opportunity and inspiration to do even more. Registering color with multiple passes on a single-color press – especially printing its max sheet size of 11×17 – was no mean feat, and the success with Panorama gave me the confidence to explore full four-color, which I then used throughout The Collector from #24-on.”
