commented on Sad Stuff: Underground Comics Giant Dennis Eichhorn is Dead
Oh, this stings. I read and re-read and re-re-read my Real Stuff and Real Smut issues back in the day, the stories were incredible and Denny's chosen collaborators always put in top-notch work. (Sean, images from the fork-sticking story leapt into my brain as soon as you mentioned it.)
Was it Bagge that told Denny to do the book because his stories were "way better than that boring old fart Pekar"? Anyway, I sent him some samples once in the hopes of illustrating a story for him, and he took the time to reply with a very thoughtful letter back that I still have somewhere.
The guy was one in a million, I'll be enjoying re-re-re-reading those books this weekend.
