Speaking for myself and all the Marines in my detachment your magazines are a welcome relief from the boredom of war. Here at Lz Blady we rarely see new magazines, unless someone subscribes to them. Fortunately for us, subscribe to yours. At first, my companions scoffed at me for buying (please excuse the expression) a comic book. After your issues came, however, hardly got a chance to read them at all. They were constantly borrowed by friends.

A scene from "The Soft, Sweet Lips of Hell" as illustrated by Neal Adams and Steve Englehart. This script, written by Denny O'Neil, received rave revues from our readers. Limited space prevented us from printing the hundred or more comments.

Somewhere

in a long winding valley a wild stream raced southward choked with rattling ice from the glacial north. through grassy plains dotted with copses and groves of the spreading forest it moved and meandered, coiling back again and again upon itself, but ever and .always mowhg forward. pines, birches, willows and oaks stood straight against the light, cool sky of the morning of early spring. and standing there with them, still for the moment, and staring, was one lone figure.

stk's pÂŁap. i'u never f/np her. the beasts are always hungry, leav/ng only bone. anp all bones are as one. "

'if

"the entire y/llage pestroyed. all peap, save her anp me. i must f/np her soo/v. " the young valley lay stretched to the light touch of cumulus clouds. high limestone cliffs stood rigid on either side. winding down precariously from the rim toward the life giving water were goat trails where from time to time all manner of animal life trafficked. it was one of these that the single human figure made its

way downward. the warming sun rose higher and higher, and the shadows shortened toward noon.

Also, we hear that there might be a panel on underground comics and a fanzine editors panel, hosted by Comic Crusader publisher Greim.

Convention Issue can be had by sending 50c to M. Greim, Box 132, Dedham, Mass. 02026.

Regular membership is $3.50, available in advance by mail, or at the door while daily membership is $1.50 per day, available at the door only. Supporting (nonattending) membership is $1.50 and includes both the Program Book and the Progress Report. The convention will be free to all Comicon members staying at the hotel. Room reservations are to be returned to convention sponsors and not to the hotel, double.

A special luncheon featuring Comicon's as yet unannounced guest of honor will be held Sunday, July 4th. Past honored denizens include Hal Foster (Prince Valiant) and Harvey Kurtzman (Little Annie Fanny). For information, write Phil Seuling, 2883 West 12th St., Brooklyn, N.Y. 11224. This year's Con should be the best yet. And beware, the coming of the 1971 Warren Awards.
