Features interviews with Frank Frazetta, Bernie Wrightson.  

 

There were two printings of Infinity #2, with different pages of art by Dan Adkins and Gray Morrow.  The first printing had heavy, glossy covers, and the second printing had a mat finish cover.  

 

There is no date on either printing, but the ad included here states that Infinity #2 was published in 1971.   The ad also states that one of the new pieces of art would be by Clyde Caldwell, but no Caldwell art appears in either printing.

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.”

Trumpet #11

Category:Fanzines
Country
Year
Notes

Features include portfolios by Stephen Fabian and Robert Kline.  Also included is Ellison’s “Repent Harlequin! Said the Ticktockman,” with illustrations by Tim Kirk.  

 

Trumpet became Nickelodeon #1 in 1975 after Tom Reamy became embroiled in a publishing deal with Nostalgia Inc. that didn’t turn out as he had hoped or expected or been led to believe. 

 

Trumpet #12 would be published in 1981, following the publication of Nickelodeon #1 and #2, when Ken Keller tried to resurrect the title.  It would be the final issue.
