Welcome back to another Fabulous Find. This week I’ve got Fan # 1, which comes from Chris Padovano and was published in 1977. It was actually a continuation of The Fans of Central Jersey fanzine, which had just folded. Chris had been working on issue # 21, when the club & zine went under, so he self-published this zine, using contributions already in hand. Cover is by C C Beck!
Beside the Christmas cover, Chris had quite a few other Christmas drawings from various artists. Here are just a couple to whet your appetite.
Obviously the above is Red Sonja and the Wizard (Frank Thorne himself) drawn by Frank Thorne.
Next up is E-Man, drawn by this co-creator, Joe Staton.
That’s it for this week. I’ll post a couple more of the Christmas drawings next week, as well. Hope you are almost ready for Christmas as it’s just right around the corner. I spent most of the day wrapping gifts, so it’s definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Turner household!
Take care and I’ll be seeing you …
