Maggie Thompson

Maggie Thompson at Comic-Con International, July 19-22 at the San Diego Convention Center

Writer, editor, Comics Buyer’s Guide, Comic-Con’s Toucan blog

Award-winner Maggie Thompson recently came across a comic book that she’d bought when she was 3½, which means that that’s when she began collecting comic books. She and Don Thompson launched their Comic Art fanzine when she was 17. These days, she continues to collect, write, and edit in the course of a career that includes 30 years of Comics Buyer’s Guide and her current monthly contribution to Comic-Con’s Toucan blog, weekly post for Gemstone Publishing’s Scoop newsletter, and maintenance of her own website.
