I had the honor of visiting a friend in Seattle and she took me out to dinner with an artist named Mike Grell, this name seemed to bang a gong in my head so i called Ilikai and asked him if he didn't have a painting by Mike. sure enough it was of the" Warlord" comic character. he also drew the green arrow and the new batman when they had the first movie come out with "whats his name" damn brain fart!
Met don Martin at an Orlando comic con in 81, man was he fried out, too much recreationals had burned him out. got to be friends with a few artists as i went just about every year till I went overseas to work.
Oh and William Gaines, the man who invented/created MAD magazine...he had to after that comic code crap came in and they banned every word in all his comic titles he had at the time from passing the code. they were out to get him cause of the "damage" to young minds his comic may have had. words like...terror, creepy and things like that.
