NEW LEGENDS in New York Debut 

Tom Canty, Brian iCody, Eric Kimball and Bob Gould, the four Mass. Art lads & 
who comprise Boston Comicworks, announce and extend an open invitiation to 

an upcoming show of their graphic wares in New York. Exhibiting at the 

Creation Convention, an annual gathering of comic art, horror, sci-fi and 

fantasy enthusiasts at the Hotel Liltmore, 43rd and Madison, January 4,5,5, 

they'll be debuting the second issue of their underground comic, NEW LEGENDS, 

as well as a large collection of heretofore unseen work. ALl interested 

parties are urged to dial Boston Comicworks at 267-4026 for further information. 

Against all odds (and soaring paper prices), NEW LEGENDS.‘II is finally meeting 
the long smile of a friendly printer and promises to set fans of the comix 
medium on their collective ear. Upcoming for the Comicworks team are articles 
on them in The Boston Phoenix and Creem Magazine as well as a spot on Boston's 

~ “own Channel Five. Taking it all in their traditional stride, the lads are 
currently and furiously hard at work on a “second project" -- the nature of 
which they smilingly (but politely) hesitate to divulge.

From Registrar Stavros: 

This semester thers will be a “new look" to the method of giving semester eval ~ 
uations or grades. Each faculty member will receive a computer print-out sheet 
that will list each student in the course. To the right of the student's name 
will appear H «= P == Inc. == W == NC. All the faculty member has to do is 

- 3« 

circle the appropriate symbol opposite each student's name and sign the sheet at . 
& the bottom. Hopefully, grading will be simpler and faster. 

Grades must be returned to the Registrar no later than December 31, 1973.

Library hours during intersession will be 8:00 A.M. - 4:30 P.M. The library 
will be closed on Dec. 24, Dec. 25 and Jan. l-
