Yes, it was strange, as it was our National Enquirer parody.
Movie ad parodies in the days before Photoshop, where I put this together using paste, tape, Flair pens and White-out. The "Animal Embassy" was my favorite.
We now had to mark some of the bits as "bogus ads" if we scattered them around because the Plague was now running ads from time to time when we could get some.
Here's the cover of the parody section. The only thing I really contributed was the photo of Harpo, so they wrote the story around that. I just wanted to avoid them using a pieced-together graphic on the front. My one actual contribution, the crime story. It was an old piece I had written in college for some assignment. But it kinda fit the parody, so I got it in. I forewent the byline to keep in the spirit of the parody, hence the "reported by" line. But I snuck my initials in there.
When we lost our really good artist, several of us attempted to continue John Rawlins' "Fond Fairwells" comic. This was my attempt...
