Some of the earliest organized fan activity can be traced back to one individual. Aubrey MacDermott (1909 – 1996) organized the East Bay Club beginning in April, 1929. He told his story in an article published in 1987, the entirety of which can be read on Fancyclopedia.
As part of our efforts to bring the history of fandom to life, FFE is commissioning original graphic novelizations of key events from the 1930s. This is the first example, drawn and lettered by Eric Brock.
