Comic book artist Stan Goldberg was never a ham, but he helped introduce amateur radio to a generation of young people in the 1980s and 90s as one of the two artists who drew the "Archie's Ham Radio Adventure" comic book. Well-known in the comic book industry, he worked for Marvel and DC Comics as well as Archie Comics. CQ was part of the amateur radio industry group, along with the ARRL, that developed and distributed the "Archie's Ham Radio Adventure" comic. The ARRL Letter reported that Goldberg died in late August at age 83 after suffering a debilitating stroke.
