    90. Fandom Confidential (1982). Art by Jim Engel.

    Engle and collaborator Chuck Fiala wrote and drew a satirical fumetti-style commentary in the fanzine The Comic Reader (founded by a teen-aged Paul Levitz). Engel and Fiala generally depicted themselves as TV news commentators, exchanging trenchant comments on mainstream comics and their creators. When the pair "interviewed" the height-impaired Jim Steranko he could not be seen because his head didn't reach the table. In another skit a commentary about Frank Miller's use of "heavy blacks" turned out to be his inclusion of Ella Fitzgerald and Fats Domino. Kitchen Sink Press published a compilation of Fandom Confidential in magazine format and produced this promotional button for retailers and fans.

    Diameter 2.25 inches. $3.00

    One note, for serious button collectors, you may want to read the KSP BUTTON TEXT which explains the numbering systems for identifying the various buttons produced over the last 30 years, or see the COMPLETE KSP BUTTON LIST. The list is VERY long, so be patient while it loads.
