Throughout the 1940s and 1950s, Ken did numerous horror/suspense stories for American Comics Group’s Adventures into the Unknown, The Clutching Hand, Forbidden Worlds, and Out of the Night.
In 1957, Ken left comics and moved to syndicated comic strips starting with the King Features detective stripJudd Saxon. Ken is probably best known for his work on the Dr. Kildare comic strip which he drew for over 25 years, and for Dark Shadows, a strip Ken drew based on the popular television series.
“I am thrilled to have a legend like Ken Bald at the Baltimore Comic-Con,” said Marc Nathan, show promoter for the convention. “Our fans are in for a real treat – it is not often that you get a chance to see and talk to one of the folks who were there almost from the beginning.”
