Alan Hanley's Star Trek








The fanzine pages of the early 1970's were filled with two things--Star Trek cartoons and Alan Hanley artwork. Here, thanks to one of our readers, we have a little-seen combination of both. The late Mr. Hanley's skills as a caricaturist are on view and the cartoons aren't as lame as some of the hundreds that flooded the market in those days. Uhura's gag by the way was lifted from E. Nelson Bridwell's famous MAD gag in which Tonto offered the same response when the Lone Ranger complained that the Indians were attacking. Were these ever published anywhere? The originals of these are for sale by the gentleman who shared these images with us. If anyone is interested, please email me here and I'll put you in touch with him.
