1969-1972 / Anomaly Publishing Empire - Bud Plant

_
Anomaly began as a magazine-size sci-fi fantasy fanzine founded by Jan Strnad and Don Bain in the late '60s. The series featured art by Reed Crandall and Robert Kline and stories from Strnad and Harlan Ellison. Richard Corben appeared in the last two issues, which definitely drove the title to be included in any listing of underground comics.

This was a high-quality publication from its birth, as the coated paper interior stock and heavy weight covers of the first three issues attest. The fourth issue was the first published as a traditional comic book (and ended up being the last issue of the series).
