Dave Stevens R.I.P.
I've been really busy but what news greats me when I get the chance to look around? Dave Stevens died two days ago (see here). Man this sucks. I love his retro style and his classy/sexy gals. At least we now know why he disappeared from the comics scene as he had been fighting leukemia.
I first encountered his work via Eclipse Comics. I’ll always remember his Airbody cover, which I picked up as a poster. It knocked my socks off but then anything he did was amazing IMO like the Rocketeer. I also have a Mr. Monster Poster by him that I love too. Dave was class act all the way and he will be missed by this fanboy. He was much too young…
