AVERAGE SCORE 8
Richard Corben self-published Fantagor #1 in 1970, two years after his first published work appeared in the fanzine Voice of Comicdom. The 1st printing of Fantagor was 8.5x11 inches and the cover and interior paper is heavier and higher grade than subsequent printings. Corben contributes two of the three feature stories, though one was written by Starr Armitage. Herb Arnold and Armitage collaborated on the third story.
