OF COMICS AND CRYPTS


This Canadian fanzine from November 1971 is split between a combination of comics and horror films, hence the title. Included are interviews with Jack Kirby and Carmine Infantino and a discussion on Kirby's Fourth World. The second half has features on Hammer's Dracula. Nice pro and fan art sprinkled throughout.

Lots more fanzines HERE.

  1. Thanks for giving me the chance to read that Kirby interview. His effusive energy really comes out in this one. Kirby wasn't a great interview in that he was rarely able to use words sufficiently to communicate his ideas, and that's why he needed the comics. But his enthusiasm for the new project is evident and even Infantino still seems fully on board. I've never doubted Infantino's dedication to Kirby, he meant what he said when he recruited him, but things just didn't work out ideally for either of them. However imperfect and unfinished the Fourth World material is, it's one of the best creators in comics performing at the top of his game.

  2. I think the term "fully-formed" could be used here. I remember when DC started with the Fourth World, it was publicized as a really big deal. And for good reason, and this is a good reason to call him "The King".
