Tales of Fantasy # 42

Issue 42 of Tales Of Fantasy has something a little different for regular readers of this series. This one is a Super Hero story! The story is written by Mike Tuz, and Larry Johnson does the art. Super heroes don't always get it right, and sometimes they can make things worse. That's the basic premise for this issue. Mike includes all of Larry's well known characters, Madam Boogala, her son Goomar, and of course Detective Kolowski, trying to sort things out. Larry's great letters section,"Mails of Fantasy" returns. Reading the mail section can really give you some insight on the previous issue. His stable of letter writers, take great care in analyzing each issue of TOF, making this section of the comic a must read for all.

TOF 42 is $3.00 from Larry Johnson 9 St.Peter St. #4 Jamaica Plain, MA 02130-4907

Captain Spectacular #3

Small press comics have their share of super heroes, but none quite like Nate Corrigan's "Captain Spectacular". How often have you seen a Super Hero, swing into action when he hears that a garbage dumpster is overflowing with garbage?

Well CS does just that. He jumps up runs into a bathroom, changes into his Janitorial uniform, and flies the dumpster to the dump. Howz that for a Super Hero?

Now of course no Super Hero comic would be complete without a villain, so Nate throws one in here just for good measure.

Nate's art and layout are flawless, making this a must have small press comic.

It's just $2.00 from Nate Corrigan PO Box 25 Houghton NY 14744
