Fanzines


Rare limited print run comics, sf and other fanzines plus small press publications. Print runs on many of the more obscure titles were low and reproduction methods are primitive compared to current laser and ink jet technology. Keep in mind some ditto or mimeo pages may be faded with age - or more likely were that way to start with! And of course text may run close to - or off - the side of a page or pages may be cropped close to text.  Side stapled denotes a fanzine with staples on the left hand edge of the cover - the most common method used to bind fanzines. Number of staples varied, usually one to three.  Saddle stitched binding employs staples in the fanzine seam where it folds, just like a comic book or magazine.  Condition as listed but expect minor dings & occasional rusty staples. Refer to Home for shipping/insurance costs.
