In Memory of David Bowie

I saved the David Bowie dedication comic for last not because his death was any less important or felt, but perhaps (and you may judge me misguided for this) because I felt David Bowie’s death was like to get the most attention of all of last month’s celebrity deaths, and my small voice did not need to be added to the noise. That said, I did not wish to go without honouring him, and certainly Bowie’s career made him a prime candidate to be included in a Gentleman Cthulhu. Read more… ›

In Memory of David Margulies

I have to admit, I had no idea who David Margulies was other than by his role in Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II as the mayor of New York City, Lenny Clotch. I never watched the Sopranos (as an Italian-American, I think mafia-based entertainment is just stupid), and I’m not a theatre goer. However, in the midst of the recent string of celebrity deaths (or semi-recent, as these dedication comics are still on Gentleman Cthulhu’s weekly posting schedule), a friend of mine posted that Margulies had died, and immediately I decided to add a comic for him as well.

In Memory of Angus Scrimm

Angus_ScrimmWhen I originally wrote the following blog piece, and conceived the idea of bumping this week’s planned Gentleman Cthulhu for a dedication comic to Angus Scrimm there had been only one other death reported: David Bowie. Scrimm’s role as the Tall Man in the Phantasm series seemed to fit the theme of this comic better, so I went with him. But then, as I was finishing the work on today’s comic, I saw the news about Alan Rickman. More, a friend of mine (who’s Facebook post was originally how I found out about Scrimm’s death) posted that David Margulies died as well (known for his role as Mayor Lenny Clotch in Ghostbusters).

I have seriously considered creating dedication comics for all three, not to be crass, but rather because I don’t want to be remiss in honouring only one death and not the others, especially because of the iconic roles they played and films they were a part of (even Bowie, who’s better known for his music). My only regret is that I can’t put the comics out faster. But today’s is about the Tall Man. We’ll see if the others follow. Now, as I had originally written… Read more… ›
