Kurtzman Fanzine Stolen (!) at San Diego Comic-Con...

Hey Gang,
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 Chronicles series 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!
If you have any information, please post it here or get in contact with Bill directly at 

Here is a large scan of the stolen item for your detecting pleasure:

All Star Begotten Newsletter...

The covers shown belong to All Star Begotten #s 14, 61 and 100. 
The first two were published in 1963 and #100 in 1965.  I can't find much info on this fanzine and would appreciate any help with them.  

Ronn Foss Artwork...

This is some artwork by Ronn Foss that came up for sale on ebay some time ago.  Anyone Recognize this?  Vampire Mermaid, perhaps?
