Black Zeppelin (Gene Day’s…)

 BZGD   (Renegade, 1985-1986)

™ and ©1985 Gene Day

(From the Slings & Arrows Comic Guide)

An anthology title created in the late 1970s, featuring work by Gene Day, his brothers Dan and David, and various creative friends, including a young Dave Sim. Gene’s busy schedule never allowed him time to publish, and after his untimely death friends and family dusted off the old pages and finished it. Most stories are horror and fantasy tales by young enthusiasts, which show promise but are immature, thus more interesting as history than entertainment. The first issue encapsulates the balance of the series as a whole, with scripts by Gene Day, illustrated by himself and brother Dan, plus strips from Charles Vess and Sim. ~NF
