FANTASY ADVERTISER #1
By Frank Dobson - 1965
Two years before Anthony Roche published Merry Marvel Fanzine in Ireland (and later Heroes Unlimited), and Phil Clarke and Steve Moore published Ka-Pow, in the UK, Frank Dobson produced this Ad zine. Basically, his listings of comics for sale.
Issue 1 consists of five pages, including printed pages, a carbon copy, and two pages of lists that look to be handwritten in blue ink.
Whether or not this is how all of the first issues looked when distributed (I suspect it was only given to a handful of people), or if it's Frank's own master copy, I have no idea.
it's a real bit of UK zine history, and not one I ever thought that I would find.
