Steve Gerber

Do you guys remember Thundarr the Barbarian? I watched the cartoon religiously when I was little, as well as Plastic Man, Dungeons and Dragons…. And now a great man who worked on them, as well as wrote many comics that do not deserve to be second on this blog post to the cartoons, has passed away. Steve Gerber died in Las Vegas, after his battle with Cystic Fibrosis. Omega the Unknown, Howard the Duck. My childhood was so full of this guy, a name I never even noticed until my late teens. So the lesson is, kiddies, don’t just take your favorite things for granted. Write a person a fan letter when you get a chance, while you still HAVE the chance. Even artists are not immortal.
