Welcome! This is my personal blog, where I chat about whatever takes my fancy, reminisce about comics, Old Time Radio, and science-fiction fandoms, review what I feel like reviewing, and so on. It also archives scans of some of the fanzines with which I've been involved.

Fanzine Library: Comic Art #1 (Spring 1961)

Comic Art was one of the very earliest fanzines covering the world of comics and science fiction. Note the inclusion of the (then) current version of the Comics Code, halfway through the issue.

Maggie --

I am looking for a copy of "A Listing of Dell Special Series Comic Books (and a Few Others)" which was a supplement to your Comic Art Fanzine.

Can you help me locate a copy?

I don't have extra copies but at some point I hope to post scans of the publication at this site. It wasn't a Comic Art supplement; rather, it was a separate publication. (Note: There was a one-sheet sequel with additions and corrections.)

The information in the fanzine has been incorporated in a couple of other publications. We made it available to Bob Overstreet for his price guide, and I provided it to Pete Bickford for his Comic Base electronic guide. Its information was a simple issue number and title listing; you'll find the information in more detail online at www.comics.org.
