Two of the pioneers of comics fandom are at Comic-Con as special guests to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the birth of comics fandom. Richard and Pat Lupoff appeared as Captain Marvel and Mary Marvel at a WorldCon science fiction convention in Pittsburgh in 1960 and jump-started comics fandom. Articles about comics ("All in Color for a Dime") that appeared in their sf fanzines Xero inspired publication of comics-oriented zines and led to meeting fans around the country, helping form the basis of fandom. The Lupoffs will talk with friend and fellow fandom founder Maggie Thompson about their lives in and out of comics.
