Following the death of Tom Reamy in 1977, Trumpet #12 was published by Ken Keller in an effort to resurrect the title. Reamy had followed Trumpet #11 (1974) with Nickelodeon #1 (1975) and Nickelodeon #2 (1976) with co-editor/co-publisher Keller after becoming embroiled in a publishing deal with Nostalgia Inc. that didn’t turn out as he had hoped or been led to believe. Trumpet #12 would be the final issue.
Par Holman lampoons Plastic Man, Bozo the Clown and King Kong within the title theme.
