Bill Schelly passes away aged 67

It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to announce that comic book historian Bill Schelly has passed away aged 67 following a battle with multiple myeloma. Schelly was a renowned fanzine publisher launching Super-Heroes Anonymous in February 1965, the first in a string of magazines he edited and published until 1972. His most famous was Sense of Wonder. By the end of its 12-issue run, Sense of Wonder had presented the first attempt to chronicle the whole career of comics innovator Will Eisner, as well as work by Steve Ditko, Frank Frazetta and Stanley Pitt. It was discontinued after he graduated from the University of Idaho with a B.S. in education in 1973.

In 1990, Schelly began researching the history of the classic era of comic book fandom. Eventually, his research became printed as The Golden Age of Comic Fandom. It sold-out quickly. A revised and expanded edition was published in 1998, and another printing was done in 2003.
