R.I.P., Steve Gerber
Aww, man... Steve Gerber died. If you're not familiar with Steve, he was one of the best comic book writers out there, best known for his offbeat work for Marvel in the 1970s, most notably for creating Howard the Duck. Mark Evanier, of course, has a lot of nice things to say over on his blog, and has been facilitating things on Steve's own blog since his death. I didn't even know Gerber was sick. I'll just say that I happen to be midway through reading The Essential Man-Thing right now, and it's great stuff.
