Star Studded Comics (Fanzine)

Even though it lasted 18 issues, it had some of the super, awesome comic heroes. Larry Herndon, Buddy Saunders and Howard Keltner all were comic book fans. At some time, the three saw the other's work and realized they were all in Texas. They met, in person, at Herndon's house. Since fanzine comics were common, the three became the "Texas Trio" and create their own fanzine: Star Studded Comics. Even though it was mostly the trio's work, other comic creators joined: Roy Thomas, Grass Green, Sam Grainger and Bill Dubay. Heroes included Doctor Weird (my favorite), Xal-Kor, the Defender, Powerman (no contention to the Marvel character), the Eye and Dragonfly to a name a few. Although the comic mainly focused on the Superhero gene, some stories focused on others: the Battle of Credibility Cap (Wild West), Warrior of Llarn (Sword and Sorcery) and Wildman and Rubberoy and The Count (satire). The comic ended when Larry Herndon, Buddy Saunders and Howard Keltner decided to "move on with their lives".
