Cyclone! #5, January 1986
Edited by Blaire Wentworth
A year later a group of us was looking towards raising backing for OzComics mark II. A lot of mistakes had been made with mark I, but on the up side, a lot of the better creative elements had come together. Steve Carter and Des Waterman, who later went on to do Phantastique, were part of this team. At this point, Gary Chaloner, who was the father of Cyclone!, heard about us. He wanted to create an anthology magazine that was superheroic in style. And so, for a brief period, the two groups that ultimately spun off into the Phantastique crowd and the Cyclone! crowd, were all one and the same. In the first Cyclone! there was a short horror story by Steve which was a hint at that legacy.
