I met him once at a convention. Got a chance to tell him how much I'd enjoyed his work. That's something, I guess.
This is already a bad year and we're only in March.
Wow, I'm such a fan. I've also met him, I think most recently at the 2011 HeroesCon. He created the con poster, and signed it personally for me. I'm looking at it right now...
He was a true talent who remains unique. One of my favorite volumes of Creepy is the one that collects his work. This is a major loss to the comics community.
An immensely talented artist. I had read just a few weeks ago that he was retiring due to continuing health problems. His Seventies work on Swamp Thing and on various stories for Warren are some of the best horror comics ever produced.
CORRECTION: "It lasted only three issues."
He did four great horror covers for Marvel in 1970, Tower of Shadows#8-9 and Chamber of Darkness#7-8, but sadly between them we only got one story, the rightfully much reprinted "Gargoyle Every Night" in COD#7. The monster standing over the molten gold at the end still gives me same willies it gave me back then.
