When you saw the 1973 picture of Ken wearing a “Ken Krueger Fan Club” shirt, did you think to yourself, “That’s pretty cool, I wish I had one of those!”? Well, now thanks to Ken’s sons Gus and Pete, you can. Let Gus tell you all about it.

I (Mike Towry) have been scanning some of Shel Dorf’s old film negatives and came across two great pictures of Ken with the 1973 Comic-Con crew. In one, Ken is wearing a “Ken Krueger Fan Club” t-shirt. I’ve identified some of those pictured, but not all. Does anyone recognize the rest of them or where these pictures were taken?

The new online, Fall 2009 edition of the Comic-Con Magazine is available from http://www.comic-con.org/common/cc_magazine.shtml. It features very nice articles on San Diego Comic-Con International Founder Shel Dorf (pages 4-5) and Chairman of Comic-Con #1 Ken Krueger (page 6). There is also a great picture of Ken with some of the original Comic-Con crew at the 2009 Comic-Con on page 36.
