After year's in the making Robin Dale's much anticipated Comic Fanzine Price Guide is finally in print! Available from Amazon.com and direct from the publisher Amdale Media (in several limited editions) at www.amdalemedia.com/print.shtml
The Guide includes a variety of information on fanzines and publications about comics including:
1-Notations of key issues and early content of non-comic artists and writers, such as Gene Simmons of Kiss, author George R. R. Martin, and others
2-Early, previously unknown pre-professional work by key artists such as Perez, Miller, Byrne, Starlin, Kaluta and many more
3-Over 400 covers of all types of publications
4-The entire range of publications about comics is covered including fanzines/prozines, magazines, books, guides, indexes, encyclopedias, histories and more!
It is a wonderful document and contains a huge amount of very informative material. In addition to a listing of fanzines with prices, dates, publisher's names and hundreds of illustrations, there is an article by Aaron Caplan about Gene Simmons (of Kiss) and his involvement with fanzines in the sixties, an introduction to what a fanzine is and a listing of books related to comics (with prices, dates etc).
