Please join us for an exciting new exhibit this Spring entitled Fanzines: Passion Made Personal, curated by Karen Green, Curator of Comics and Cartoons.
Comics fanzines operated on several levels: they presented news, reviews, interviews; they celebrated the medium, its creators, its characters, and its publishers; most of all, they created community. This exhibition, drawing on the Rare Book & Manuscript Library’s extensive fanzine collection, explores the what, the why, the who, and the how. Items from the papers of Bill Schelly, John Fantucchio, Paul Levitz, and Hames Ware demonstrate how a relatively small group of people helped create and develop comics fandom.
This exhibit will run in the RBML's Kempner Gallery from Febuary 20th 2023 to June 30th 2023. Accessible Monday through Friday, 10am to 4pm.
