ERB Fanzines

Back in the 1960s, in my pre-teen years, I came across fanzines, fan publications devoted to a particular topic. The internet has made such things quaint, but here is a look at some of the covers of THE BARSOOMIAN, a publication devoted to the works of the great EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS.

The Honeymooners

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:285:]]The Honeymooners: The Lost Episodes B&W. 1985. Jackie Gleason, Art Carney, Audrey Meadows, Joyce RandolPh; dir. Frank $atenstein. 55 min. ea. Beta, VHS. $29.95 ea. Maljack/MPI. He is the most famous bus driver in the world-which is remarkable given that he is also a loudmouth, a braggart, and a little thickheaded. But he is Ralph Kramden, and as the focus of The Honeymooners his schemes, passions, and whopping mistakes have become well-known and beloved. Now, with Maljack/MPI's release of recently unearthed Honeymooners kinescopes, the story, as they say, continues.
