32 Froth – Loony Doomster on the rampage & Subscription Form


This is the first issue of the new monthly Undercurrents. We hope you like it. We know it’s not perfect yet, but we’re working on it. So send us your contributions and suggestions. Going monthly (except for a break in January and August) will enable us to cover events and news much more efficiently – but it involves greater expense in producing the magazine. Please subscribe! We have a re-launch offer of £6 for 10 issues, and if you can manage a donation, every centime counts in our battle for world domin­ation by 1984. Our thanks to those who have already contributed.

Undercurrents was brought to you by: Peter CuIshaw: features and reviews; Nick Hanna: news and features; Dave Smith: production; Tam Dougan: Subscriptions co-ordinator; Lowana Veal, Antonia Millan: listings; Will Hill: cover design and logo; Wilf Adamson: cartoons.

Ably assisted by: Godfrey Boyle, Doug Bollen, Bill Flatman, Stephen Joseph, Helen McEwan, Julian Rothenstein and one or two others we’ve probably forgotten.
