Richard was an intelligent guy who never seemed to lose his sense of humor. I’ll miss him!

Scott Shaw!

Scott Shaw! was a member of the Woodchucks, a group of science-fiction and comic enthusiasts from San Diego’s Crawford High School who were mentored by Ken Krueger, a publisher, bookstore owner, and member of science fiction’s First Fandom. The Woodchucks joined with the group of comic fans that Richard Alf had helped to gather around Shel Dorf to produce San Diego’s first Comic-Cons in 1970. Since those days, Scott has gone on to become a professional, award-winning cartoonist/writer, which you can read more about at http://www.shawcartoons.com/bio.php.
