The comics industry and blogosphere has been overflowing with tributes to the late Dave Stevens, who died Monday. His work influenced many people — more than you might think given the relative scarcity of his output. A couple of news notes:
— Stevens’ mother has requested that in lieu of flowers, people make donations to the Hairy Cell Leukemia Research Foundation.
— Arnold Fenner wrote to tell us that THE ART OF DAVE STEVENS (above) will be out in Spring ’09 deom Underwood Books. The book is 90% completed and the editors will finish the rest from interviews.
And now some links to particularly notable tributes:
