Editorial Reviews

Review

"Reading Bill Schelly's fond, funny, and nostalgic memoir was like going home again."
—George R. R. Martin

“For decades, comics superfan and historian Bill Schelly had a secret identity, but in Sense of Wonder he pulls off the mask and tells the world how growing up as a comic book fan—and gay—influenced his life. Men in tights, gaining empowerment, gay parenting, love lost, and found … Schelly lays it all bare in a frank and fascinating way.”
—Andy Mangels, best-selling author of Star Trek and Star Wars and founder of the Gays in Comics Panel at Comic-Con International

“Passionate and magnificent! Bill Schelly was one of those integral people responsible for nurturing and growing comic book fandom until the rest of the planet finally began to join us, bringing comic books and superheroes from the subversive to the mainstream. For that, the entire world today owes him its thanks for a job well done!”
—Michael Uslan, executive producer of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises

“The author is living proof that a lifelong passion can pay off in countless ways, both personal and professional. Long live fandom!”
—Leonard Maltin, film critic for Entertainment Tonight

"The core audience for this memoir of a life in thrall to comics is Schelly’s fellow fans, but his reminiscences of this bygone subculture long before superheroes entered the mainstream warrants a wider readership."
