Contemporary Pictorial Literature #12
I posted Contemporary Pictorial Literature #11 here. Above is the very next, and alas final issue of that fanzine's run. By this time most of the guys behind CPL were working for a professional comics company and the amateur press suffered from lack of time.
In addition to the usual material by John Byrne, Roger Stern and the gang, this issue sports a provocative Paul Gulacy cover, a hilarious Hulk pin-up by Herb Trimpe, and some extensive coverage of highly overlooked artist Mike Vosburg. Steven Grant even manages to get an article done on the blink-and-you-missed-them publisher Atlas-Seaboard.
