what is FANBOY ?

we all the know the term Fanboy. it's been in common use since the early 70's, when according to the underground artist Jay Lynch it was coined by him and Glenn Bray (tho it's use predates their epic collaboration).here's a an aproximation of what A fanboy is: a person usually characterized by an obsessive loyalty to a specific realm of media (music, comix, film, etc...). yadda yadda yadda.

But what i'm asking is "what IS fanboy" as opposed to "what is A fanboy". get it? good! ok, Fanboy IS a fanzine created by the mythical Alfred Judson & Bill Beasley (Jay Lynch & Glenn Bray) in 1972. Originally conceived as a goof to give away or sell to colleagues or other fans. Most of the original 12 copies were sold or given away at the Chicago Comicon. In future printings several other underground artists (Justin Green, Denis Kitchen and Jay Kinney (all with pseudonyms) also contributed.

And so, i have recently acquired all the original art and writing to this zine and intend to do a show with it. we will reprint it in a very limited edition and offer it with some of the proceeds going to some charity.
