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! Paul Levitz writes: "[Sense of Wonder is] charmingly nostalgic, intimate and heart-warming. Schelly’s trip through the wilderness years of fandom echoes what so many of us felt when we made a magic connection with other comics fans." Profusely illustrated with 150 photos and illustrations, including rare work by Dick Giordano, Joe Sinnott, Steve Ditko, Neal Adams, Mike Kaluta, Wally Wood, Doug Potter, Dave Cockrum, C. C. Beck, Don Newton, and a knock-out Captain America frontispiece by!

Jack Kirby and Mike Allred.
