A while back, I posted an unused cover for HUGH CAMPBELL's '80s fanzine, FUSION. The illustration was one I'd drawn back around 1981 or '82, and as I previously mentioned, I'd first used it for a suggested cover for RON BENNETT's fanzine/catalogue, SKYRACK'S FANTASY TRADER, though I never got around to sending it. So, 27 years later, here it finally is... quite effective, even if I say so myself.

|"I've lost my front door key!"|
Here's a real collector's item for you to feast your eyes on - the 1964 AURORA model kit of SUPERMAN, as built and painted by myself. Aurora was once the world's biggest plastic model kit company, before the high price of oil put them out of business in 1977. (Oil being one of the ingredients in the manufacture of plastic.)
Hopefully, MOEBIUS MODELS will get around to reissuing this kit in its original form (with original box art) in the near future. Why not contact them at http://www.moebiusmodels.com and suggest it? Go on, you know it makes sense.

When one examines the evidence, the fact that FF #108 featured Kirby material and came out the same month as New Gods #1 seems to be nothing more than coincidence, otherwise Marvel surely would have hyped it to the rafters. They didn't - which puts paid to that little notion as far as I'm concerned. That's the trouble with most "conspiracy theories" - they seldom withstand scrutiny when measured against the plain and simple facts of the matter.
