Perihelion

Perihelion, produced by Sam Bellotto, Jr. and Eric M. Jones, was one of the more elaborate Science Fiction/Fantasy fanzines of the 1960s. Many zines from the era were produced using mimeograph machines because of their low cost, but Perihelion was offset printed using a press at Long Island University, where Bellotto was a student. This more costly printing method allowed for the inclusion of highly detailed screend artwork. For instance, Perihelion contained comics by well-known 1960s underground cartoonist Vaughn Bode. It also contained fiction, poetry, and articles. Perihelion was published from 1967 to 1969.
