From Summer/ Autumn 1981... the second issue of Lew (MARVEL UK and a lot else besides) Stringer's fanzine METAMORPH (not to be confused with the later DOCTOR WHO fanzine the same - or similar - name).
This was an early appearance of 'Brick Person', Lew's caped crusader who swiftly became known as BRICKMAN. And eventually graduated to his own Harrier Comics one-stop and - more recently - a really nice digest collection.
The mag itself is a really nice mix of material... the sort of thing that would tickle a Star Age geek's fancy if they found it poking through their letterbox.
Lew's very own blog is highly recommended for keeping up with all of the latest releases.ReplyDelete
Brickman first appeared in my previous fanzine, After Image. The strip in that issue of Metamorph was the third Brickman story. The latest Brickman adventures appeared in Brickman Returns that I published last year, in full colour! :)ReplyDelete
