Gene Colan, R.I.P.

Friday, June 24th, 2011

Steve’s longtime collaborator Gene Colan passed away yesterday.  Words about him can be found on my site and every other one that cares about great comic artists. There will be a tribute panel for Gene at the Comic-Con International in San Diego this year.  It will be on Friday, July 24 at Noon.  I’ll be […]

Steve in Hall of Fame

Monday, July 26th, 2010

Last Friday evening at the Comic-Con International in San Diego, our friend Steve was formally inducted into the Hall of Fame along with Burne Hogarth, Mort Weisinger, Dick Giordano, Bob Montana and Mike Kaluta.  Accepting on Steve’s behalf were his daughter Samantha and his longtime friend/collaborator, Mary Skrenes.  A lot of us were pleased not […]

2 Years and Counting…

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

Yesterday marked two years since we lost our friend Gerber.  I dunno about you but his name still comes up in conversations around me and I often hear folks lament the loss of one of their favorite writers…and sometimes, he isn’t even “one of their favorites,” he’s Numero Uno.  I still miss my pal. That’s […]

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

Hello.  I haven’t posted anything here for a while because I haven’t thought of anything to post.  Nothing Gerber-wise seems to have changed.  He’s still gone and we still miss him. Hey,  I dunno how many folks are still checking in here but I have a question for anyone who does.  There are actually folks […]

Virus Alert

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

A Spammer posted a harmless-looking message as a comment to the previous message.  It contained a link (irrelevant to Gerber) that took you to a harmless-looking website.  But that website was full of nasty stuff to infect your computer and steal your identity and make your toenails fall out. I have deleted the message…but if […]

More Tales of Steve

Monday, April 6th, 2009

The mysterious person who’s posting a biography of Steve at this link has just added another chapter.  This one covers the years after Steve was ousted from his Duck…working for me at Hanna-Barbera, working in animation and suing Marvel.  As I kinda expected, the author got a lot of things wrong. I’m pretty sure I […]

Duck Tale

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

If Steve were here, I’m pretty sure he’d post this link.  It’s your chance to watch the movie, Howard the Duck, for free in a little window on your computer.  Or at least, you can watch enough of it to see Steve’s credit.  We can all find things to criticize in the film but my […]

Tales of Steve

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

An anonymous person has begun posting a biography of S. Gerber over at this link.  Someone on Heidi MacDonald’s message board guessed I was the author but I assure you, I’m not.  For one thing, there are a couple of mistakes in the narrative that I would not have made. You’ll probably want to check […]

New Thread

Thursday, August 7th, 2008

Hello.  Yeah, it’s Evanier.  I thought it was time to close all the old threads and open up a new one to talk about Steve.  A big Howard the Duck collection is out now.  Apart from the fact that we all wish Steve had lived to see it and receive reprint fees, does anyone have […]

The Latest

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

Evanier again.  This board was down for a day or so because Steve’s account with the hosting company expired and we had to transfer control of to me.  I’m going to keep things up and running indefinitely unless the Gerber family decides it wants something else for this site. There will always be a […]
