A Plop From the Past

I visited Propnomicon’s blog today and saw the statue he posted (Saturday, February 12, 2011).

Immediately, an image from Plop Magazine flashed into my mind. Now I hadn’t thought of that publication in 30 years, so it’s rather surprising, that this exact image flashed into my mind when I saw Bruce Attley’s Shadows Over Innsmouth statue.

Plop Magazine dates to the mid 1970s and had a drawing style of underground comics and the very earliest of Mad Magazine issues (Sergio Aragones was involved BTW). It only ran 24 issues, ending their run in 1976. I was never much of a Plop reader, as I preferred Fat Freddy’s Cat, Vaugn Bode’s work and Zippy the Pinhead as far as undergrounds went.
