SHEL DORF BY ALLEN SAUNDERS

Here's a rarity. Shel Dorf, founder of the San Diego Comic-Con, sent me several boxes of his files before he died, and the other day, while rummaging in the Rancid Raves Book Grotto, I opened one of those boxes and found the drawing posted hereabouts. Shel routinely asked friends of his in the syndicated comics world (as well as everywhere else) to produce special drawings for the Con souvenir booklet. This is one of those — a self-portrait by Allen Saunders, the writer of Mary Worth and Steve Roper, about whom it was said that he drew only stick figures to guide the artists who worked on his strips; but here we have evidence that he did somewhat better than stick figures.
