Jay Lynch, underground comix creator, recently passed away, and Travis has a personal remembrance.
Dan Spiegle passed away on Saturday.
If you weren’t familiar with Dan’s work, I feel sorry for you. He was, simply put, one of the most ferociously talented artists that comics have ever produced. And probably one of the most underrated by fandom.
John Watkiss has died of cancer. Let’s remember his gorgeous work!
Miguel Ferrer died today. Let’s celebrate his cool career!
Dick Gautier, best known as Hymie the Robot on Get Smart, passed away this week at age 85, so I thought it would be appropriate to give him a proper acknowledgement. In comedy, the “straight man” doesn’t always get their due; if they do their job right, they make it look easy, and their partner gets all the laughs, but it takes great timing and delivery to set up a joke, and Gautier was good at it.
Travis tells a quick story about writing to Alan Thicke for a school assignment back in elementary school. Also, animals are just like people too.
Yes, of course Robert Vaughn was Napoleon Solo, the man from UNCLE. But he was also badass private op Harry Rule, cunning con artist Albert Stroller, the last of the Magnificent Seven, and so much more.
