I was a member of MZS-APA for years. After it folded I continued to publish and mail out ‘zines for a few years. Now I just do the forum, which is less expensive and more immediately gratifying. Here are the covers from my last fanzine:

Flyer for NEXUS ‘87 convention that was scrubbed due to apparent funding and staff issues at the last minute. Guests were already committed to attend and contracts under negotiation when things broke down. The con committee was pretty far along on the project as indicated by the flyers. An interesting footnote to fan history, nonetheless...

Squa Tront #2, the back cover...



Think this is by Reed Crandall, but I'll have to double check.
Here's the back cover to Squa Tront #3, which I know is by Crandall...

Here is Squa Tront #4, which actually had four color covers (double covers)!
The front cover was by Graham Ingles...




The back cover was by Harvey Kurtzman...




The second interior covers (front & back) were by Kenneth Smith and Vaughn Bode...






It's getting late, so I'll post one more set & call it an evening, but will post more tomorrow.

Here's Squa Tront #1 (front cover)...




And back...




The back cover appears unsigned, but I think both were by Roger Hill, the author of two recent hard cover books, one last year on Reed Crandall and the other just out on Mac Raboy.

Now I'll bid all good night!

@Siggy love the ERB stuff! I am a big fan of his books.

This is one of the rare shipping envelopes that couldn't be used because the art (Roger Hill?) covered too much area to pass postal regulations requiring space for stamps & addresses...



Glad I snagged one when Jerry briefly offered these to subscribers. Here's the reworked design...



...and my subscription copy arrived just fine, as addressed.

Note: House/street numbers are blurred here just as a precaution to protect the owner's privacy (my childhood home in Okla. was sold long ago).

Comic Effect was a ‘zine published by Jim Kingman which I contributed to semi-regularly back in the late ‘90s/ early 2000s.
