SpringCon '12: A Timely Conversation with Allen Bellman

Allen Bellman held court in a panel at SpringCon 2012 in the Twin Cities this weekend. The 84-year old former artist is a veteran of Timely Comics, the company that became Marvel, and drew icons such as Captain America, Human Torch and Namor.

Bellman is enjoying a surge of popularity as of late thanks to fans with a penchant for comics history, as well as his involvement in the WWII tales of a certain First Avenger who recently graced the big screen. At his panel he told decades-worth of stories with the enthusiasm of a young man, often digressing into interesting anecdotes about the early House of Ideas.
