Nice piece of original art by prolific 60's fanzine artist Steve Sabo. Not the Steve Sabo who was named Atlanta Falcons Director of College Scouting in 2013 This one:
In 1965, DC Comics had no plans to revive Doctor Mid-Nite. DC editor Julius Schwartz gave M.I.T. student and comic book letterhackRick Norwood permission to publish a Dr. Midnight story in his fanzine, Five. The story written by Norwood and illustrated by Steve Sabo features a doctor named Tom Benson who is blinded in battle. He discovers that his other senses are super-sensitive and dons the Doctor Midnight costume to fight crime.
Bill Schelly, author, fandom founder and publisher of many fanzines and fanzine-related books such as: The Golden Age of Comic Fandom, The Comic Fandom Reader, Fandom's Finest Comics, Founders of Comic Fandom, Best of Star-Studded Comics plus the Art of Joe Kubert and the upcoming American Comic Book Chroniclesseries was a victim of theft!
In his own words:
"I was having a great time at Comic-Con International 2013 in San Diego, only to have this Kurtzman fanzine stolen from me on Thursday. Actually, it's not a fanzine per se, but a booklet put together by Harvey's first year class at the School of Visual Arts in New York City (1973). I'm going to contaqct as many dealers as possible, especially those in Southern California, so they recognize this stolen item, if anyone approaches them. Please spread the word and help me do anything possible to get this wonderful treasure back!! Thanks!!"
Lets help Bill by spreading the word of this theft around quickly to keep it from being sold to some unknowing collector or shop owner. Be a real-life superhero and tell as many people as you can. Let's catch this thief!
