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 just at the award but at the audience reaction. And of course it goes without saying that the only negative is that it didn’t happen years ago when Gerber could have been around to enjoy it.
Once again, I am locking down comments on all earlier posts and ask that you post whatever you have to say about Gerber — whether it’s about this or not — in the Comments section of this post.
