Shel Dorf

I heard through the cartoonist grapevine that Shel Dorf passed away at 1:15 PM Tuesday, after a very long illness. Shel was, of course, one of the founders of the San Diego Comic-con, aka Comic-con International: San Diego. I first met Shel in 1979, at my first Comic-con. He was a fixture at the con until 2001, when it became physically too difficult for him to get around.

What a legacy he leaves.
