RBCC ROCKET'S BLAST COMIC COLLECTOR COMIC BOOKS FANZINES 1966-1975

THE fanzine that began Comics Fandom in the early 1960s. The Rocket's Blast began as a science fiction fanzine that later merged with another fanzine, the Comic Collector, continuing the Rocket's Blast numbering and simply became know as the RBCC. The RBCC was one of the first to bring fans together in a large forum to buy and sell comics through the mail BEFORE the Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide existed, BEFORE the Buyer's Guide to Comic Fandom NOW the Comic Buyers Guide existed, BEFORE Comic Shops as we know them existed, BEFORE the Internet, Web Stores and Online Auction sites existed.

Unless you could attend a Convention in a major city the RBCC was usually the only way for fans to get back issues.

The RBCC was filled with ads for Golden Age and Silver Age comics (the then prices would make you cry today!), movies, old time radio, original art, convention reports, and other various fan publications. It also had great articles, interviews, comic reprints, and artwork from pros like Frank Brunner, Wallace Wood, Mike Ploog, Steve Ditko, Neal Adams, Frank Frazetta, Vaughn Bode, Tom Sutton, Berni Wrightson. Finally, the RBCC was also a showcase for then amateur artists BEFORE they turned pro including Don Newton, Mike Zeck, Kerry Gammill, Bret Blevins, and others.

Print runs on these RBCC's were between 1000 for the early issues and 2250 for the later issues (1500 for #121) so today, 36-45 years later, possibly less than 10% of the print run survives making THESE ISSUES RARE and HARD TO FIND especially in these grades.

All issues, to my knowledge and unless otherwise specified, ARE COMPLETE.
