Big news in the Phoenix area,  Atomic Comics, with four retail stores,  have gone brankrupt.


A thoughtful article about the Phoenix area can be read here.

Atomic Comics was a major presence in the Phoenix area but they also had an active online and ebay store that was widely visited by comic book fans.  This has to be a major blow to the owner of Atomic Comics and their customers.  Our condolences go out to the owner at this rough time in the economy.

While Comico was one of the pioneering independent publishers, fanzines were also being printed as well and one of the most famous fanzines was the Rocket's Blast newsletter statred in 1961 by  G.B. Love who, despite having cerebral palsy, typed every issue!  When Rocket's Blast merged with the Comic Collector the RBCC was born.  James Van Hise became the primary force behind the newsletter and the fanzine continues to draw praise today as the first place that many collectors placed ads to buy and sell from their collections.  If you want to see scans of the very earliest RB newlsetter check out this thread at the collector's society!

Recently a  huge collection of 60(!) issues of this famous fanzine has been purchased and all 60 are now listed on ebay.

For a nicely written history of RBCC, as most collector's call it now, check out this article on Comic Attack.
