I know only a few DRs are aware of his work, but comic book legend Will Eisner died yesterday.  While he is mostly know as the creator of The Spirit, he did extraordinary work in a number of graphic novels that were published during the past twenty years or so.  He was a wonderful writer/artist.
Illustrator Kelly Freas, whose rendition of Mad's Alfred E. Neuman is the classic one that most of us remember, also died yesterday.  He did a lot of sci-fi illustration, too (but, then, I always suspected AEN was an alien, LOL).

I keep forgetting to mention I have revised my Farmer essay to include the word excoriates (twice!).  I'm still looking for a place to stick an acolyte or two (so to speak).  :)

Do not worry, dear reader ozderek - we love hot cross puns here at haineshisway.com.  And don't forget to read the notes first, or you simply will not be in the know and one must always be in the know.

Oh, and can any of our Mac users tell me if this advice I got is good: They say it's not really necessary to turn the machine off - but to simply put it in "sleep" mode when I'm done for the evening.

No worries.

Just remember Rule #1 here on HHW: No Groaning Allowed.

Puns a plenty, but no groaning.

-And I think I did have a Caramello Koala when I was in Australia last year too.  *I had 17 pounds of chocolate in one carry-on when I flew out of Sydney.  I was sooo scared Customs was not going to consider it "tinned" food.  Whew!

Goodnight.

A touch pad.  I haven't had my hand on a nipple in years.
Too much information.   ::)

I much, much prefer the film soundtrack as the Broadway stars are in much better voice and the ones who are different from the show album like John Cullum are infinitely better singers, but it's not on CD (is it?), so I just have to watch the film or listen to my LP soundtrack when I want a '1776' fix.

Matt, I have the extended laserdisc version and made a CD from the soundtrack.  I think I did a pretty good job (in my humble opinion, IMHO in Internet lingo).  It's longer than the actual soundtrack album because I added reprises and a bit of dialogue to help with the continuity.  Would you want a copy?  Let me know.  I also have the original London cast recording of 1776.  It's very interesting...and very British. ::)

Fear not, Ozderek.  Here at HHW, we'd never put a pundit in the pun pit! ;D

Dan the Man, I did know that Eisner died.  He is my favourite comic illustrator and writer.  THE SPIRIT was brilliant!  I collected them from years when Warren was publishing them.  Still have them and revisit them often. Harvey comics also put out some Spirit comics earlier than Warren. I'd like to find some of those.  I also have many of Eisner's graphic novels.  He was a hugely influential artist and writer (people forget his writing talent). He inspired a lot of comic greats who regard him as the master.

Thanks for the pic of the Eisner dame.

Welcome five GUESTS.  I can't remember WHAT we're talkin' about.  I do have to get used to the fact that the clock is located upper right rather than lower right.  And that everything in the AOL e-mails is located in the opposite place - very confusing.  However, if that's the worst of it, I'm a happy camper so far.

I was wrong.  It was Kitchen Sink that published the wonderful SPIRIT magazine by Eisner...Warren may have had it in the beginning.  I'd have to check out my stash to be sure.  And I just might.  Those stories are well worth revisiting.

I love the Kitchen Sink press - they did 27 beautiful volumes of Li'l Abner dailies.
