Tales of Fantasy no. 45

It's time to give another shout out to Larry Johnson's Tales of Fantasy. Let me point out, as I have done before...NUMBER 45. please note these comics average 40 pages an issue, so publishing issue 45 is no small accomplishment. And Larry sees no let up in the future!

Issue 45 features Larry's long time leading character, Lew Brown. This time Lew encounters "TIBERO" a tree monster! I would have called this issue " A Tree Grows in Brookston", but that's why Larry does the series and not me.

As with all the monsters in Brookston, the tree attacks the homeless community first. Lew is writing for View Magazine and sees an opportunity for a story after talking to some of the homeless folks.

There is no need for me to go into detail here, because when you purchase a copy of Tales of Fantasy, you get 'Mails of Fantasy". Mof is Larry's letter section, and each letter examines the previous issue in detail, offering insights you may not have thought of in your initial reading of the comic. Writers like Perry Lake,Larry Blake,and Mike Tuz, along with others, make the letters of comment very interesting reading.
