Sparta IL: National Periodical Publications, Inc. 1968. 34p., newsprint fanzine for small boppers featuring stories on or interviews with soft-rock celebrities, DC-style comic format with some panels (in color as advertised, but musician photos are b&w), 10x7 inch staplebound self-wraps with coated color cover.
