The Parallel Times

Finally! Something about Dark Shadows Fandom! Isn't that what this site is supposed to be about?

No two Dark Shadows fanzines are alike. Oh, they might have a few similarities in content, but each publication took great pains to distinguish itself. The Parallel Times was one of the more art-intensive fanzines and featured a serialized comicstrip set in the years after the end of the television show. Illustrated by Robert Nieves, it's one of my favorite pieces of Dark Shadows fanfic and I'd love to read the storyline in its entirety (assuming it was completed.)

Above is a segment from an issue of The Parallel Times from the winter of 1985, which also included an interview with Donna Wandrey, want ads, an editorial, episode summaries and lots of original art.

The magazine (and I own only a single issue of this fanzine) was published out of Queens, N.Y., by a group called The Alternate Shadows. If anyone has any information about this fanzine, feel free to share in the comments section below.
