We had a request to feature more media fanzines, so here is a box, chosen at random, from the incredible Mariellen “Ming” Wathne Fanzine Collection (MsC 313). [Read about the AMAZING collection here!]
This particular box includes Beauty and the Beast and B&tB crossover fanzines dating from 1988-1992. Beauty and the Beast was a CBS show from 1987-1990 starring Linda Hamilton and Ron Pearlman with George R. R. Martin as a writer and producer!
Light was a long-running and highly influential Canadian zine published by Leslie A. Croutch. Like Fantascience Digest, Light maintained a strong and fairly consistent aesthetic across many issues. Light features a well-executed and busy layout, brimming with compelling illustrations from a variety of artists. Of particular note is issue # 135, an “all-girl” issue featuring content from female artists and writers.
