When the San Diego Comic-Con was founded in 1970, it provided an exclusive space where fans, dealers, collectors, and industry professionals could come together to celebrate their love of comics and popular culture. In the decades since, Comic-Con has grown in size and scope, attracting hundreds of thousands of fans each summer and increased attention from the media industries, especially Hollywood, which uses the convention’s exclusivity to spread promotional hype far and wide. What made the San Diego Comic-Con a Hollywood destination? How does the industry’s presence at Comic-Con shape our ideas about what it means to be a fan? And what can this single event tell us about the relationship between media industries and their fans, past and present? Only at Comic-Con answers these questions and more as it examines the connection between exclusivity and the proliferation of media industry promotion at the longest-running comic convention in North America.

Alan Clark, a leading historian and collector of comics, has been in the forefront of research in this field and in the quest for factual information over the last twenty-five years he has been pursuing artists, and editors, or their heirs, while persuading publishers to open up their archives. The compiler is also grateful for the fact that he had the work of other diligent researchers and collectors to draw upon. The result is this pioneering biographical dictionary, covering the period from 1867 to 1997, in which the cloak of anonymity is stripped from hundreds of pen and ink men. The dictionary entries describe in succinct detail the professional lives and careers of their subjects, together with the characters they created and the publications for which they worked. The author hopes and intends that the information will be used as a basis for further research.

These volumes replace the 1933 Supplement to the OED. The vocabulary treated is that which came into use during the publication of the successive sections of the main Dictionary -- that is, between 1884, when the first fascicle of the letter A was published, and 1928, when the final section of the Dictionary appeared -- together with accessions to the English language in Britain and abroad from 1928 to the present day. Nearly all the material in the 1933 Supplement has been retained here, though in revised form (Preface).
