Notes

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.”
