Near Myths was a comic magazine published in Edinburgh during the late 1970s that only ran for five issues. The initial editor was Rob King and it was produced by Galaxy Media. It is important because it featured the first works of Grant Morrison and Bryan Talbot (who took over as editor for the final fifth issue) as well as Graham Manley and Tony O'Donnell.
