Utopian was an amateur press publication released by R.J. Banks in the 1950's in the U.S.A.

Utopian was a side sewn mimeographed fanzine published in a limited signed and numbered edition of usually 300 copies, in Corsicana, Texas, U.S.A.

The editor made a point of including fiction in Utopian at a time when many fanzines were becoming reluctant to do so. He felt new writers needed encouragement. Lists of fans were also included in the zine for the purpose of networking.

Contributors included Forrest J. Ackerman (Voice of the Imagi-Nation), James R. Adams, Manly Banister (The Nekromantikon), Robert Bloch, Alice Bullock, E.E. Evans (Nova), Lee Hoffman (Quandry), David H. Keller, Lilith Lorraine (Challenge), J.T. Oliver, Ray Palmer (The Comet), Mack Reynolds, Dallas Ross, and Bob Tucker (Le Zombie).
