In the Before Time, ere the cyber-wizards constructed a digital ever-growing tower of Babel, I was a fanzine publisher/editor. Marvel approved of my amatuerish efforts and occasionally they would send me items. One time it was a binder containing photocopies of every issue of WORLD OF FANTASY.
When I rediscovered this decades-old binder I interpreted it as synchronicity recruiting me as an agent of fortune. If you enjoy any of today or tomorrow's art don't than thank me, thank the Unknown Staffer!
The first six issues of WORLD OF FANTASY were published in 1956. They contained 36 stories by 22 artists from Sol Brodsky...
to Kurt Schaffenberger
and even Dave Berg before he went MAD.
Only 5 issues of WORLD OF FANTASY were published in 1957. They presented 30 stories by 24 artists including future Kirby inkers Dick Ayers
and Paul Reinman.
