Sense of Wonder: A Life in Comic Fandom : a Personal Memoir of Fandom's Golden Age
TwoMorrows Publishing, 2001 - 213 pages
"Sense of Wonder is the personal, often funny, sometimes poignant recollections of Bill Schelly's years as a comic book collector and fanzine publisher in the 1960s and 1970s. Fandom's leading historian recounts his strange-but-true encounters with Steve Ditko, Dr. Frederic Wertham, Jim Shooter, Bob Kane and more, in this beautifully-written, highly readable text. It's all here: the fans, the dealers, the comicons, and more, including a special introduction by Rascally Roy Thomas!"--Amazon.
