The Sabbath #1; Horror Fanzine 1976

The Sabbath No.1 (1976)
Stapled; 54 pages
Premier issue of a rare horror fanzine called The Sabbath, signed by the publisher/editor.

A rare and passionate effort from a fan keen on Hammer Horror and the associated stars of those gothic horror films. No information provided on where it originated, but my guess is somewhere on the East Coast of the US.

There is a stapled in Editorial page that is signed by the publisher Mark Richmond as well as a charming if odd inscription to his mother next to a full page drawing of Ingrid Pitt.
Includes reviews of non-Hammer and current at the time genre films, interview with Forrest J. Ackerman, Peter Cushing, coverage of the Famous Monsters Convention in NYC of 1975 and more. $40
