Comic Con founder Ken Kreuger (b.1926) died of an heart attack on November 21. Krueger was an attendee of the first World Science Fiction Convention in 1939 and was active in fandom throughout his life, including owning a bookstore in San Diego. He is perhaps best known for his work on the Golden State Comic-Con in 1970, which grew into the San Diego Comic Con. Krueger’s death comes in the same month as that of Comic Con founder Shel Dorf.
