Ten Years

Sunday, February 11th, 2018

It’s been ten years since the passing of Steve Gerber.  I wrote some thoughts over on my blog and now I’m opening a comment thread here so anyone with something to say about him can say it. If you’ve visited here before, you may notice that our layout has changed.  When I took over managing […]

This Blog

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

No one seems to be posting on this blog anymore, which is quite understandable.  A lot of folks seem to be dropping by to read it, which is also quite understandable.  Nothing written by Steve Gerber was unworthy of reading. I am going to keep this blog online indefinitely but for a multitude of tech […]

Gerber Gets the Finger!

Friday, May 17th, 2013

SAN DIEGO – Steve Gerber and Don Rosa have been selected to receive the 2013 Bill Finger Award for Excellence in Comic Book Writing. The selection, made by a blue-ribbon committee chaired by writer-historian Mark Evanier, was unanimous. The Bill Finger Award was instituted in 2005 at the instigation of comic book legend Jerry Robinson. […]

It’s been over a year since I updated this board. I find myself talking about Steve often and thinking about him but there hasn’t been anything that has prompted me to post here. Maybe we can change that. I’ll start a new thread and ask that folks post about the Gerber work that has been […]

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 […]

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 […]
