If anyone if interested (John K.?), there is now a non-profit fan website dedicated to the work of one-of-a-kind 'cartoonist extraordinaire', RICK GRIMES, at http://www.rickgrimesfansite.net

Grimes created a number of original stories (or strips, if you like) for various adult and underground comic book publications from 1976 to 2004, including: Manticore, The Journal of Popular Culture, Parade of Gore, Omnibus, Third Rail, Dr. Wirtham's Comix And Stories, The One, Dogstar, Taboo, Hyena, Roarin' Rick's Rare Bit Fiends, Heavy Metal, and The Starry Wisdom: A Tribute to H.P. Lovecraft.

Among the weird, wonderful, and downright disturbing characters Rick created over these near 30 years, such oddities include: Weird Dick, Puzz Fundles, Meemo, Thripey Skake, Von Sticky, Primitive Iggy, Gluggiggla, Spiketball Bobo, Little Gladys Goomergutts, Foofny Noof, Subterranean Forehead, Thurman Throbble, etc.

Further updates will be made to the site by Grimes in the coming weeks and months.

On January 22nd 2009, the Grimes fan site received a 'plug' on renowned writer/artist, Stephen R. Bissette's Official website, here: http://srbissette.com/?p=2689

It was this sequence with --- it's Eric von Shteric, the world's loudest tuba player, right? --- that made me laugh out loud recently when rereading "Don Martin Steps Out" for maybe the first time since childhood. Don Martin just DREW funny, in some basic visceral way that I had to wait about 40 years to really appreciate.
