Julius Schwartz’s autobiography is aptly titled Man of Two Worlds as he moved in two rather different, but intimately connected worlds. The Earth-2 Julie was a pivotal figure in early science fiction fandom – he collaborated on the first fanzine, convention, literary agency, you name it. The Earth-1 Julie was the man who helmed the 1960s revivals at DC Comics and is thus single handily responsible for comics’s Silver Age.
