Don Rickles. a Comic (book) Character

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  A few weeks back, comedian Don Rickles passes away.  But besides being a iconic comedian, did you know that he appeared as a comic character in a Jimmy Olsen 2-part story in the early 70s? 

     Well it really happened as written and drawn by the also iconic, Jack Kirby.  The funniest thing about the story...his name was Goody Rickles!

My Davy Crockett Dies!

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Just yesterday, Fess Parker, the actor who portrayed both Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone passed away.  Of course both folk heroes were portrayed in the comics, drawn by Dan Spiegle, a friend of mine who just passed away last month.

     Yes, paraphrasing his Boone theme song, "Fess Parker was a man, yes a reeeaal man..."  But I will always remember Parker every time I hear the end of the Disney trilogy, "Davy, Davy Crockett, (and Fess Parker) died at the Alamo!  Fess was 85.

Bronze Age Horror Artist Passes

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  But in the world of comics, a giant has passed on, the co-creator of Swamp Thing, Bernie Wrightson, of brain tumors.

     The cancer started some time back but the symptoms became debilitating last November.  Bernie along with writer Len Wein created one of the great Muck Monsters of all time...Swamp Thing that was revitalized in the 80s by British writer, Alan Moore.

     I met Bernie twice and he was always friendly, a kind man who will be missed.

Young Hearts

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Today is Valentine's Day.  So let's look at a few "love" comics of the 60s and 70s.
    
     "My Love" was on of my favorites from Marvel Comics.  The good news...they had all of those great Marvel artists, John Romita, Gene Colan, John Buscema and many more.  The bad news, it only ran about 10 issues before it went reprint.

     Over at DC Comics, they had many many love comics with series running within the books like, "The Manu Loves of Lisa St. Clair."  And let's not forget "3 Girls."  That is the good news, the bad?  DC seemed to have hundreds of love books to choose from.

     Either way, have a great lovely holiday with your sweetie.
