The Last Prom was a research zine published out of Los Angeles, California in the early 90's.

There were 4 issues, with subject matter that included "A History of the Drivers' Education Film'", which was featured in Chip Rowe's Book of Zines and was the impetus behind the underground film Hell's Highway. Another issue, entitled Whispers From Space-Part 2, about West Virginia UFO publisher Gray Barker, was also made into a feature film. Other issues were about Southern California TV preacher Dr. Gene Scott and UFO contactee George Van Tassel.

The Last Prom has been included in zine collections at DePaul University, New York University, and University of California at Los Angeles.

The writer-publisher, Ralph Coon, a reclusive figure in the zine community, is believed to be a pseudonym used by an unidentified writer for The Los Angeles Times.
