This paper posits that letter writers to comic books form rudimentary social networks by engaging in a discursive community of fans through their letters. This work is based on a survey of letters to the comic books Action Comics and Superman from 1967–1977. The paper shows how the discursive community shaped identities of its participants as fans, collectors and for many as comic book professionals.
