Gahan Wilson died recently. For black humor lovers such as myself this is a loss. For those not familiar with his work it kind of was like a super macabre version of the Larson's 'The Far Side' (my other favorite cartoon artist)
I was introduced to Gahan's art when, as a boy, discovered my father's Playboy magazines (I only read the articles). I don't know if my humor derived from him and other absurdist artists or if I enjoyed his work because I was warped from birth. In any case I shall miss him.
