Letters Column: Blasts From The Readers

Synopsis:
RBCC was still primarily an adzine at this time (which are great fun to read) with several regular features mixed in. Appearing this issue is The Pulps (looking at The Spider), The RB-CC Information Center, Comic Collector's Comments and the first installment of BRUCE HAMILTON's column, Behind The Scenes (featuring a two-page interview with JACK KIRBY!!). There is also a very informative and inspiring piece on G.B. LOVE reprinted from The Miami Herald.

Notes:
BLASTS FROM THE READERS includes letters from JEFF CAIN (San Francisco, CA), DAVE PUCKETT (Cave City, KY), DICK MOSSO (Auburn, Mass.), BOB FLEMING (Albion, NY), DEAN NEWMAN (Portland, OR), and JIM SMITH (Athens, GA). GORDON B. LOVE also opens the lettercol explaining the profile piece about him that appeared in The Miami Herald's magazine section (and that's reproduced in this issue).

Among the many interesting ads: (1) a full-page comic strip ad by MARK WHEATLEY for NUCLEUS, (2) a full-page ad for THE COMIC BOOK PRICE GUIDE (1st Edition) illustrated and hand-lettered by CHESNEY & OVERSTREET; (3) a page of beautiful VINCENT MARCHESANO illustrations promoting THE SPECTRUM; (4) a full-page illustrated and hand-lettered ad for WITZEND #8; (5) a full-page comic strip by BOB FOSTER for MYRON MOOSE FUNNIES, and (6) an inside back-cover ad picturing 10 comic character watches in their packaging. And these are just a smattering of the many, many fascinating ads that make up the bulk of this issue of RBCC.

Synopsis:
Once was the day a fan could send up to three questions and two 8-cent stamps to RAYMOND MILLER and receive answers to those nagging questions (e.g., when did Batman get the giant penny? WORLD'S FINEST #30).

This issue concludes the BATMAN INDEX, and includes the Dynamic Duo's appearances in WORLD'S FINEST, STAR SPANGLED COMICS and the sundry appearances of the Bat-Hound, Bat-Mite, Bat-Woman and Bat-Girl.

Synopsis:
In this first installment of his column, BRUCE HAMILTON interviews JACK KIRBY about his early days with JOE SIMON, his tenure at Marvel under STAN LEE and his projects at DC. Artist TOM SUTTON illustrated the column's heading.

Notes:
A fascinating quotation from JACK KIRBY re THE RED SKULL.
BRUCE, "Is it true that some of the things signed by Simon and Kirby actually contained work by other people?"
JACK: "Yes. We had, for instance, Eddie Herron, the man who created Captain Marvel. He was an editor for Fawcett who later became a writer for D.C. He also created the Red Skull, which I used in an early Captain America. Compared to Captain Marvel, that became his biggest hit. In fact, the Red Skull stands out as a kind of an all time villain. He proved to be a great character. But I didn't create him."
