Rest In Peace- Richard Alf

Richard Alf, a co-founder of the San Diego Comic Con, passed away from pancreatic cancer at age 59.  He was just diagnosis last month.  He help innovate the whole Con phenomena.  He fronted thousands of dollars to get the first and the next two conventions going. He was the owner of the Comic Kingdom shop in San Diego. (MSN)

As a guy who has wanted to attend the San Diego Comic Con since I first saw the advertisements in the back of comics in the late 70s, I am greatly saddened by this news. I hope to be able to attend the SDCC in the next few years. But I will be unable to meet Mr. Alf and tell him my appreciation for this vision.
