The very first zine I created was a great idea by our accordion player, Dylan Blackthorn. We were doing a show called Cthulhu Beach Party and Mr. Blackthorn suggested we make short horror zines and sell them as merch at our shows. Genius! I jumped on it real hard and produced three zines called Tales of Terror. I have yet to republish the other two, perhaps I will, but The Hermit Crab was one of my favorites and when I decided that I'd republish Tales of Terror during the Clash Comix Project I knew that story would be featured.
Cthulhu Beach Party was a pretty amazing show. I actually won The B Iden Payne award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy for the role of Teddy Von Outsbutte. Ads for the show were also featured pretty heavily in the original run of Tales To Terrify so you'll see some of them here in this website edition. You'll also see a lot of grammatical and spelling errors on this page to the left here. Oh well, at least I spelled Imaginator correctly.
