Dave Stevens has died... March, 10, 2008

Dave Stevens died Monday after a long and painful battle with leukemia.
Mike Kaluta says he spoke with Dave's mom and, although Dave was only 52, she said she was thankful as he was in a lot of pain.

I'm fucking crushed....

Thought this obit from Mike Evanier was both poignant and funny.

Liked this quip about how he got to know Bettie Page once she came out of the woodwork "It's amazing. After years of fantasizing about this woman, I'm now driving her to cash her Social Security checks."

I hink I already said this in the other thread on the subject, but Yeah he was the one that found Bettie Page. She had no idea that her stuff was such a cult icon.
Regardless of the fact his art was brilliantly sublime, He really did seem like a normal and genuine guy.
