Here's a few more great Fotonovels, some kindly forwarded by Bronze Blog Buddy Graham, and some from my own scouring around the net. This one of Ralph Bakshi's legendarily aborted version of Lord Of The Rings is actually in my collection, and I'll do a piece about this one soon. Meantime, here's some of the other classic movies & TV shows you could've taken home in the era before home video. Y'know what's missing? Trancers. There really should've been a Trancers Fotonovel.
Yep, there was even one of Grease! Presumably with song lyrics and everything. Now, regarding the Star Trek ones, as I said I do have the 2nd one ( Where No Man Has Gone Before ) and will be posting a few pages from that at some point too. But, for those of you even now scouring ebay, here's what you need for the set. You're welcome.
There were also Fotonovels of the first two Trek movies, but apparently they come with a 'buyer beware' as they're actually in Black & White. Something I remember from the dying days of the Fotonovel boom, and something that obviously helped to kill them off.
