Steve Gerber passed away ten years ago and he and his work are still fondly remembered.
He, of course, wrote and introduced Howard the Duck. I believe he had him run for president.
His style was different, often making fun and having a day with many topics.
One of his last books was a Man-Thing series drawn by Kevin Nowlan. Check it out.
Gerber was a man of honor and stood up for his rights when he went head to head with Marvel.
You will see a cameo after the credits on the first Avengers movie, I believe.
