Nickelodeon took the place of Trumpet after Tom Reamy became embroiled in a publishing deal with Nostalgia Inc. that didn’t turn out as he had hoped or been led to believe. Reamy shared editing and publishing duties with Ken Keller, who would go on to publish Trumpet #12 in 1981, in an effort to resurrect the title.
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.
