Really sad.  He's was one of Marvel's most original and unusual writers.

Man, that sucks.  I really love the early Howard the Duck series.

I loved the Guardians of the Galaxy and I have many fond memories of Ookla the Mok from Thundarr.  So many memories.

It's so weird how your work can keep you young. I've been reading Gerber for decades, but it never occurred to me that he was sixty. BTW, the Dr. Fate stories he was doing for Countdown To Mystery really are terrific.
