Special Harlan Ellison issue.  Three interviews with Ellison.  Comic strip adaptations by Bret Blevins of "Basilisk" and "Soldier” by Kerry Gammill.   A photo guide to Ellison Wonderland, and more.   There also exists a limited signed edition of 200 copies. 

A virtual archive of mini-comics, fanzines, small press comics, newave comix and related items. The physical archive, housed at PF headquarters, is being built with personal acquisitions as well as generous donations from supporters. This project is most definitely a work in progress.
