Until the mid-1960s, only a handful of Swedish intellectuals regarded comics as worthy of serious attention and scholarly study. However, this changed as a result of the success of Pop Art. Works by Roy Lichtenstein and others were exhibited in Stockholm in early 1964, which was followed by a small, avant-garde gallery exhibition called Seriernas fantastiska värld (The Fantastic World of Comics) in January 1965. This exhibition is considered instrumental for the creation of comics fandom in Sweden. As most of the comics-related activities (exhibitions, books, awards, articles, and radio and television shows) were organized and headed by one man, journalist Sture Hegerfors, it was not until others began to debate in crudely printed fanzines that differences emerged in the field concerning, in particular definitions of comics.
