Sorry for the loss of this friend of BoingBoing. I enjoyed his stories here. Perhaps not so co-incidental that he left us just when his most famous creation did.


I grew up in New Jersey [60’s-70’s] reading The Voice, had to beg my New Yorker kin to drag a copy to me down in the sticks. Adios old friend.


Another counterculture great lost to us. RIP John. Thanks for sharing his excellent stories with us here, I really enjoyed reading about his life.


I’ve really enjoyed reading these comics here, it must have been great knowing the man himself.
