You can check them out on Ebay and Bud Plant.... A truly amazing book!!!!
Rest in Peace Dave.... You are truly missed!!!!
What is your favorite illustration??? If you could own just one original what would it be????? For me it would be either Crossfire #12 Cover (page 163) or Jonny Quest #5 (page 147)
I'm very fond of the Sheena 3D cover. I only managed to get Dave to sketch in a couple of copies of the Graphitti Rocketeer S/N - never could talk him into doing a sketch for me in my sketchbook. I do have most of the posters he would sell at his booth in San Diego signed as well as a stack of comics. He was one of my favorites and will be sorely missed.
The first San Diego con I went to ('89 or thereabouts) I was with a couple guys, one of whom knew Dave Stevens and did a little work with him.
At one point, Dave came up to us and said, "Hey want to go to a strip club?"
This idea appealed to me on all kinds of levels...but the guys I was with declined and Dave wandered off.
That's as close as I come to having a Dave Stevens story...
After thinking about it, it seemed kind of questionable in a thread about Dave, his art and his untimely passing...
I can't really narrow down one favorite illustration.
I got a little misty seeing Bill Stout's tribute artwork and reading about Arnie Fenner and Bill crying at the SDCC tribute panel. Unfortunately, I never got to meet Dave.
Don't pass this book up; it's a must-have.
On another note... you can view Dave's gravestone at findagrave.com at:
His company logo is on it... "E Slurpus Lickum" Art for Arf sake....
RIP my friend.......
Reading the book is very poignant - there are many photos of Dave and many references to his influences growing up with accompanying commentary, some new written for this edition and some pieced together from previous interviews as the volume was in-process up until his untimely death. It's obvious how well regarded the man was as both an artist and individual. I got choked up reading...
