I have some nice pictures of the late Al Feldstein from several San Diegos ago, but I couldn’t find them in my 20000+ digital photo library. But I did find this bad blurry photo of Feldstein and the late Jerry Robinson from 2008. I wish I’d gotten a better photo of them together but they literally saw each other in Artist Alley and were just saying hi. It was a nice moment to witness.

I’m so lucky to have been able to meet these comics industry founders, and if you can look beyond William Shatner and Matt Smith at the many comics show springing up, you might be able to find more of these pioneers and legends, just sitting and willing to talk and sign. Please take advantage while you have the chance.

Speaking of Feldstein, Steve Ringenberg has the Comics Journal obit. And here’s Gary Groth talking to Feldstein in 2013 for Child of Tomorrow, the Fantagraphics collection of Feldstein’s comics.


  1. Yep ! I just pulled out a couple of mini clips I took of Al at the panel for him at San Diego. Went down to talk with him at his table. Nobdy there but he and myself. I am not attending Wizzy con here in mpls for reasons you stated regarding meeting the masters. Except for Neal Adams there all about not comics.
