Comic-Con 2022 Special Guest: Maggie Thompson

Adult fans of comic books didn’t begin to contact each other in any organized way until 1960. Among those pop culture fans were Maggie Curtis and Don Thompson, who’d begun collecting comic books before such accumulations were recognized as worthwhile. (She still owns the Dell Four Color #103 [Easter with Mother Goose] that she bought when she was 3.) After 30 years of co-editing Comics Buyer’s Guide, Maggie Thompson now writes online columns for Comic-Con International and Gemstone Publishing, maintains her website, and is delighted that today’s readers get to see the best of what’s new—and old.
