Steve Sabo Swag from eBay...

Nice piece of original art by prolific 60's fanzine artist Steve Sabo.  Not the Steve Sabo who was named Atlanta Falcons Director of College Scouting in 2013 
This one:

In 1965, DC Comics had no plans to revive Doctor Mid-Nite. DC editor Julius Schwartz gave M.I.T. student and comic book letterhack Rick Norwood permission to publish a Dr. Midnight story in his fanzine, Five. The story written by Norwood and illustrated by Steve Sabo features a doctor named Tom Benson who is blinded in battle. He discovers that his other senses are super-sensitive and dons the Doctor Midnight costume to fight crime.

Batman '66 - Batman's Dirty Little Secret...

Biff Bam Pow!  The things you find on the internets!  Batmania, the the fanzine and Batmania, the craze brought America their doses of Bat-Action in good ol' 1966 but now the jig is up!
Holy Horizontal walls, Batman! And all this time we thought you really were scaling up the side of a building.
Oh well, at least Bat-Shark Repellent is real.  Right?

Kurtzman Fanzine Stolen (!) at San Diego Comic-Con...

Hey Gang,
Bill Schelly, author, fandom founder and publisher of many fanzines and fanzine-related books such as: The Golden Age of Comic Fandom, The Comic Fandom Reader, Fandom's Finest Comics, Founders of Comic Fandom, Best of Star-Studded Comics plus the Art of Joe Kubert and the upcoming American Comic Book Chronicles series was a victim of theft!
In his own words:

"I was having a great time at Comic-Con International 2013 in San Diego, only to have this Kurtzman fanzine stolen from me on Thursday. Actually, it's not a fanzine per se, but a booklet put together by Harvey's first year class at the School of Visual Arts in New York City (1973). I'm going to contaqct as many dealers as possible, especially those in Southern California, so they recognize this stolen item, if anyone approaches them. Please spread the word and help me do anything possible to get this wonderful treasure back!! Thanks!!"

Lets help Bill by spreading the word of this theft around quickly to keep it from being sold to some unknowing collector or shop owner.  Be a real-life superhero and tell as many people as you can.  Let's catch this thief!
If you have any information, please post it here or get in contact with Bill directly at 

Here is a large scan of the stolen item for your detecting pleasure:
