Famous Fanmail #21 J.M. DeMatteis

Filed under: Famous Fanmail — Doorman @ 8:36 am

You may not be surprised to learn that most people in the comic business grew up reading comic books. However, you might be interested in knowing what they were reading. Here’s a look at “Famous Fanmail”!

J.M. DeMatteis has written some of my favorite, gone-too-soon comics. He wrote the third Man-Thing series from Marvel’s short-lived Strange Tales line of comics. Unfortunately, the final parts of that story were written (and I think some even pencilled) but never published. And, a few years later, he wrote the whimsical (And Wizard of Oz inspired) Abadazad, published by CrossGen. And, when that comic publisher folder, it was snapped up by Disney. Hmmm… Disney now owns Marvel Comics so maybe there’s hope they’ll revive this fantastic series. Anywho, J.M.’s back with another letter to Marvel’s God of Thunder … this one was printed in Thor #212 (cover date – June 1973).
