Xero #1

Notes

Xero was a key building block in the creation of comics fandom. Produced by Dick and Pat Lupoff with Bhob Stewart (uncredited), it was a widely circulated science fiction fanzine that began to examine comic books thru the pivotal series “All In Color For A Dime.”  Those articles help focus the attention of would be comic fans in comic books, and the entire series was later reprinted in book form. Xero went on to win a Hugo, and some of the articles were reprinted many years later in a hardback book. In Flyer #5, the supplement to Xero, Dick Lupoff mentioned that the circulation of the zine was 160 copies. No copies were for sale, and no subscriptions were ever accepted. It was only available by direct mailing with recipients getting one free first time copy, and you only got subsequent issues by trading your zine for it, or writing letters of comment (long letters, not just post cards and thank you notes), or writing articles for the publication. 38 pgs, mimeographed on twiltone paper, side-stapled. Contents include:

  • Cover by Joe Sanders who never became famous for his art, but became a highly regarded science fiction critic and scholar.
  • "Xerogenisis" Editorial by Dick Lupoff
  • "The Insidious Mr. Word" book review by Pat Lupoff
  • "Psycho" movie review by Harlan Ellison "Frankly, I had the shit scared out of me."
  • "The Worlds of Titus Groan" book review by Pat Lupoff
  • "Crossword Horror" crossword puzzle by Frank Arthur Kerr
  • "And All in Color for a Dime - The Big Red Cheese" 1st installment of this influential series of articles on comic books by Dick Lupoff with spot illoes by T. Heif (tracings by Dick, Pat or Bhob Stewart)
  • "Reverberations of the Rumble" letters from Hal Shapiro, Harry Warner Jr, Pat & Dick Ellington, Earl Kemp, Don Ford, Joe Sanders, Rory Faulkner, Lew Forbes, Ted PaulsF. H. Busby
  • "Absolute Xero" another editorial by Dick & Pat

A virtual archive of mini-comics, fanzines, small press comics, newave comix and related items. The physical archive, housed at PF headquarters, is being built with personal acquisitions as well as generous donations from supporters. This project is most definitely a work in progress.
