CONVENTION PHOTOS FEATURETTE:   I wanted to publish a photo in this section today that represented why I appreciated Shel Dorf's hard work in establishing the San Diego Comic Con. 

After looking thru hundreds of photos, I chose the below photo because it is thanks to Shel Dorf and others of the early years of the SDCC that I was able to finally see so many of the Comics Greats that I had never seen in the early 1960's when I first started collecting. 

That's because the Comics Universe had been in New York City for the longest period of years!  Nowadays, I'm sure that those in SoCal couldn't imagine Not being able to attend Comic Con International.  But in 1972 when I first set up as a Dealer in the El Cortez, it was more than a dream come true.  I could buy, sell, AND meet comics greats in person while at the San Diego Comic Con! 

Thank you Shel Dorf for making it easier for Comics Greats to come to San Diego, which in the early 1970's was NOT on the world map!  That's why they called the first Con  'San Diego's Golden State Comic Con', as everyone knew where California was, but not San Diego!

Below is a photo from a 2001 panel with many comic book greats... You'll find me at many of these panels because of my love for the Silver and Bronze Ages of Comics... BTW, Can You name all of those pictured below?!  And... The next time You go to Comic Con International: San Diego... be sure to think of Shel Dorf as being one of those that started all of this for us!
