The Comicollector #1

This is the first issue of Dr. Jerry Bails’ newsletter, The Comicollector, dated September 1961. It was intended as a more periodical release than Bails’ main fanzine, Alter-Ego , intended to provide a place for fans to buy, sell and swap comics and to disseminate the latest news and gossip from the big publishers. It gives an interesting snapshot as to what the state of comic book fandom was like at the very beginning of the Silver Age.

This is probably the most fascinating thing in this fanzine: Roy Thomas’ review of FANTASTIC FOUR #1.
