Alter Ego Volume 1/ Issue 11/1978...
Mike Friedrich and Roy Thomas finished Alter Ego 11 seventeen years after the first issue was published. Issue 10 had been published in 1969.
Alter Ego sponsored the first fandom awards, the Alley Awards (after Alley Oop, the 'first' superhero by virtue of his place in time). Here's one owned by Julius Schwartz!
This is the last of these, but there exists another cover for issue 10 by Sam Grainger. I will try to locate a scan to post. To hold you over, here is the original artwork for issue 10 by Marie Severin and Gil Kane!
