inside page from issue #2, Karla Taylor. A fan in 2016 said: "Ummmm……why is Spock facing off against the embodiment of Hentai? *skims the story* I stand corrected. It appears to be Cthulu’s perverted copyright-dodging brother “Chthonioth”. Who wants Spock. That way. (Sort of.) I was kidding, fanzine! Story and art is credited to Karla Taylor. Who just cheered up my night immensely. I always appreciate a good dose of crack in my fanfic reading. #Star Trek#vintage fanzines#IDIC II#I'm somehow convinced Kirk would actually be down for it#don't ask me why#I just am" [1]
