So I wrote the 2008 Vampirella Quarterly Halloween Special, hitting stores very soon.

As a fan of the magazine as a teen, and someone who turned in their fair share of covers for the comics as an illustrator, having the opportunity to write a Vampi story is a big deal for me.

GUIDELINES for DAN at COMIC CONVENTIONS

This page should help make the experience of visiting Dan at a show more enjoyable and organized. Many times fans have questions or requests and this page will help set everyone straight.

Remembering these simple points keeps Dan sane and happy and even more fun to talk to all weekend long:

1. NO FREE SKETCHES PLEASE.
Sometimes Dan will make an exception, such as in the case of a sketchbook he is selling or hardcover book. For those who purchase a hardcover or sketchbook, a small sketch is something he does anyway.

DAVE STEVENS 1955-2008

March 13, 2008

Dave Stevens, artist, writer, illustrator, comic-book legend and creator of "The Rocketeer" character, died March 10th, after a long illness, (which has recently been revealed to be Hairy Cell Leukemia). We have lost a great talent, but those who were fortunate enough to know him even a little all knew Dave as a charismatic, gentle and quick-witted guy who always seemed years younger than his age.

Mark Evanier has written a piece on Dave you can see here:
