Thanks Brad for your question. I'm sure a lot of Comic Con freaks will be interested in the answer below. ~Den

George R.R. Martin was the first person to register for the first comic con, held in New York in 1964.

Who Is George R. R. Martin?

Born in 1948, fantasy writer George R. R. Martin grew up in Bayonne, New Jersey. His first novel, Dying of the Light, debuted in 1977, and by the mid-1980s he was also writing for television. In 1996 Martin published his first installment of the A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy series. He became a best-selling author in 2005 with the fourth title of the series, A Feast for Crows, paving the way for a widely celebrated HBO adaptation that premiered as Game of Thrones in 2011.

Early Writing: 'A Song for Lya and Others' and 'Dying of the Light' Martin sold his first short story, "The Hero," to the science-fiction magazine Galaxy, which published the work in 1971. Continuing to write short stories, he released a collection of his tales as A Song for Lya and Others in 1976. His debut novel, Dying of the Light, came out the following year. Martin also served as an editor on numerous book projects, including New Voices in Science Fiction (1977) and the Wild Cards series.

Martin lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with his wife, Parris McBride. He was previously married to Gale Burnick, from 1975 to 1979.
