I nominate @Robot Man.  His knowledge about even the most obscure things is impressive.  For Marvel ephemera, that would have to go to @TellshiarMarvelmaniaCollector.

Like about characters or about writers?

Characters, writers, artists, ephemera, publishing, hiring, original art, lives of creators, social impact, anecdotes, creative decisions, fan clubs, stan's soapbox, letters, etc.

Many topics there.


Most likely quite a number here with narrow, very specific and encyclopaedic knowledge about one area in particular.

I’ve always been a more general, ‘bit of this-and-that’ reader and collector.

It just seems Robotman is never at a loss no matter the topic.  Very impressed by him on many occasions.

Copper is a minor branch in the comics history book.  Maybe an appendix.
