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.
