Cripes. Another one. Steve Gerber, creator of Howard the Duck, and one of the most original and intelligent comics writers ever, has passed away.
I loved the original issues of Howard, and pretty much everything else I ever read by Gerber – The Defenders, Man-Thing, Tales of the Zombie, Hard Time, hell, even Destroyer Duck. He was also the creator of one of the great Saturday morning adventure toons, Thundarr the Barbarian. How cool is that?
Mark Evanier has a very good memorial at his blog. Go read it.
Rest in Peace, Steve.
