Sheldon Dorf, the man responsible for starting the convention that would become the San Diego Comic-Con, died Tuesday from kidney failure. Dorf was 76.
In 1970, Dorf put together the Golden State Comic-Convention, in a time where comic book cons were few and far between. From these humble beginnings the convention grew to what is now the largest gathering of comic and pop culture fans in the country.
