Biography/History

"Comic Fandom Monthly was created by Joe Brancatelli in 1971, when he began college. He did not like that most comic fanzines failed to stick to publishing timelines, so he wanted to show that a fanzine could be published regularly. He believed that fanzines were journalism, even if fan-made, so he aimed to always publish on time, report news, and present the best opinions he could find. However, publishing a fanzine combined with school was time-consuming and a lot of work. Comic Fandom Monthly ended up only lasting a year, but it met its monthly schedule" -- Cooke, Jon B., and David A. Roach. "Brancatelli and the Comic Books." Warren Companion: The Ultimate Reference Guide. Canada: TwoMorrows, 2001.
