    In the one Village Cry issue I once owned (probably the one with the Black Panther on cover) were photographs by Brion Gysin (taken or only collected ?), one of a self-portrait as comic hero in cave with skulls, one of a black man said to be about to be sold into slavery (somewhere in the Atlas mountains of Maroc). I lost the magazine, but have looked at books on Gysin, but never been able to see this picture again. Was it all some hoax? Or mistake?
