In Memoriam:
Bhob Stewart

March 11, 2014

One of the things about pioneers is that no one ever knows everything a pioneer did. That’s how it is with Bhob Stewart, a true comic book fandom pioneer, who passed away February 24, 2014 from emphysema. He was 76.

Stewart published The EC Fan Bulletin in 1953, co-edited the Hugo Award-winning science fiction fanzine Xero from 1960 to 1963, and has been credited with coining the term “underground comics” at a convention in 1966. He was also the creator of Wacky Packages.

Along the way he opined about comics, film, books, you name it. He spoke and wrote and designed. He promoted knowledge about comic books, horror movies, so many other things.

“I believe the question is not whether Bhob was the founder of comic fandom, but rather which of his accomplishments best qualify him for that title,” Thommy Burns said in an email.

“He wasn’t a politician or a famous movie star, the kind of person most people consider important. Bhob Stewart was an eccentric fellow whose talents and intelligence contributed creatively to American culture in many ways over the course of his life,” Bill Pearson wrote on The Comics Journal website.
