This just came up on the Comics Creators Fan Letters thread, and I'd been thinking of doing a thread on it for a while now, so here we go.
As Scott! informs us here, the Hallowed Ranks of Marveldom are:
R.F.O. (Real Frantic One) – a buyer of at least three Marvel mags a month
T.T.B. (Titanic True Believer) – a divinely-inspired “no-prize” winner)
Q.N.S. (Quite ‘Nuff Sayer) – a fortunate frantic one who’s had a letter printed)
K.O.F. (Keeper Of The Flame) [/b] – one who recruits a newcomer to Marvel’s rollickin’ ranks.
P.M.M. (Permanent Marvelite Maximus) – anyone possessing all four of the other titles.
F.F.F. (Fearless Front Facer) – an honorary title bestowed for devotion to Marvel above and beyond the call of duty.
The obvious question is, how many of these ranks do you have? But let's make it even more interesting:
--If you have ever been an R.F.O.-- and I assume most of us have been, at one time or another-- then how long did that last? Are you still an R.F.O.?
--If you are a Q.N.S., where was the letter printed, and what was it about? How heavily was it edited?
--If you are a T.T.B., what did you get the no-prize for?
--If you are a K.O.F., who did you recruit, and under what circumstances?
--As mentioned in the other thread, Roy Thomas is a F.F.F. Has anyone else ever been awarded this honor? If not, who else deserves it?
