I am encouraging Erik to pursue his own artwork--which Gene was quite proud of--and hope this will blossom into an income stream, but in the meantime some relief is needed.
If you're so inclined, please purchase a copy of Meth, Colan and Other Theologians, which Gene and I did for Aardwolf Publishing some years ago. These books can be signed and/or personalized to anyone you like and will cost $22 each, postage paid.
You can also purchase a fully signed copy of my early book This Bastard Planet. I have a few copies that were signed by Gene Colan, Marie Severin, Dave Cockrum, Paty Cockrum and myself that are $62 each postage paid. There are very few of these and, of course, Gene and Dave are gone, and Marie is no longer signing either.
We're also offering the following:
