Gordon Belljohns Love was an influential giant in comics fandom. He founded THE ROCKET'S BLAST fanzine in the early 1960s, which later merged with THE COMICOLLECTOR to form arguably the most influential fanzine of the late 1960s and '70s, THE ROCKET'S BLAST COMICOLLECTOR, or simply RBCC to its many readers. G.B. Love suffered from cerebral palsy, but never let the disease deter him from his work or hamper his passion for radio, film, and comic books. In 1974 Love relocated from Miami to Houston, Texas, turning the reins of THE RBCC over to his longtime assistant editor JAMES VAN HISE, whos successfully transitioned the 'zine away from its adzine beginnings to a feature-driven magazine that oftentimes served as a scholarly journal by publishing authoritative articles on EC Comics, comic strips, films, etc. Gordon B. Love passed away on January 17, 2001. His contributions to comics and to comics and STAR TREK fandom should never be forgotten.
