A mere matter of weeks after the publication of the last issue, I’m proud to present FANSCENE issue four.
Behind a gorgeous FIREBALL XL5 cover by fan legend Mark Ammerman and inking royalty Carlos Garzón, this issue pays tribute to Stan Lee and Mike Noble.
John Freeman, Lew stringer, Steve Holland, and Norman Boyd share their thoughts on the sublime talents of Mike Noble, while Robert Menzies, Kyle Andrews, and Dave Hornsby pay tribute to Stan Lee and the profound affect he had on them.
Aside from the tributes, there are articles on Beater Readers by Jason R. Mink (of Old Guys Who Like Old Comics fame), Richard Sheaf looks at the Dan Dare fan publication SPACESHIP AWAY, and Peter Duncan recalls the time when Stan Lee & Jack Kirby's Thor shared a comic with Dan Dare.
Robert Menzies also provides us with an interview he conducted with MARVEL U.K. legend Alan Murray, and also a review of the 2018 Anima/Manga Rai-Con, aided and abetted by a young man called Lewis.
On the strip front, Mark Wayne Barrett, Neal Burton et al, bring us the 2nd half of ‘GOT IT TOGETHER AGAIN’, and Nick Neocleous turns his skills to The Guardian.
The zine is rounded off with a number of illustrations, provided by Myself, Dave Hornsby, Andy Williams, Steve Poulacheris, Joe Matthews, Jay Slack and Bill Naylor.
Issue 5 Will celebrate 80 years of BATMAN. If you’re interested in contributing, please get your submissions to me by December 1st.
