Topic: Comic Book History
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3725 - Yesterday I received a message from Robert Gluckson via my Facebook Fan Page.
In it was the fact that he had started a Facebook Fan Page for the Los Angeles Comic Book Club, which sounded familiar to me.
After checking out the page, I realized that it was the same one that Mark Evanier had mentioned at several of his panels at the San Diego Comic Con during the past several years!
So I wanted to bring this Facebook Fan Page to your attention here!
This is the link to the page: Los Angeles Comic Book Club.
I'm not going to pretend to know much about the history of the Club, other than it was started in 1964, and that Mark Evanier was Club President for 1967 - 1969. Shortly after that he joined the company that ran Marvelmania, and then joined with Jack Kirby on his work for DC Comics.
There are some brief articles, links, and photos at the Facebook Fan Page on that time period of the Club.
There isn't much on the Club on the web, as I checked the major search engines.
Possibly some day, someone involved with the Club could write a brief history?
Here's an extra bit of info that Robert posted on my Facebook Fan Page: "Our club started in 1964; a chance meeting at our local comics provider, Pico Drugs, introduced us to Mark Evanier and the rest is history! The meetings now are in cyberspace and our old club building is no longer there, but the memories (and some fanzines) still remain."
Again, my thanks to Robert for bringing this Facebook Fan Page to my attention!
Robert also has a few other websites that he is in charge of:
Zippedytheclown.com for his theater work and teachcartooning.com for his how-to cartooning book!
