The blogosphere has been abuzz of late with news of the death of the great Howie Post this last week. Howard Post (Nov. 2, 1926-May 21, 2010) was probably the most cartooniest of all the Harvey comics artists. His characters had a very alive quality and truly seemed to want to jump off of the page.
Unfortunately it's been the tradition in humor comics NOT to list credits to the artists and writers and the travesty is, though we all knew his work most fans (including me till recently) never knew his name.
To all the comics snobs out there who look down their noses at Hot Stuff and Spooky and the rest...you know you read these, you know you loved these...you didn't just spring from the womb and start main-lining Jack Kirby. People like Howie Post were a gateway drug.
I wanted to do my fair part and celebrate Howie's art.
