lmfao... I was just going through my google reader where a bunch of comic news rss feeds are and saw these two. And it sucks because they were still active in the comic industry.

RIP to him. I loved Howard the Duck. I may have only read a few or his stories, but they were great. Very different from what everybody else was doing in the 70s.
