1)  Received the following message regarding Rick Grimes by fellow comics artist and former Kubert art school classmate, Ken Feduniewicz:

“I was going to suggest an entry for the Name-the-Grimes-21st-Century-Coffeetable-Anthology….(get ready, here it comes)…”High Grimes and Misdemeanors”.”

– Thanks for the kind words Ken! (RH).

2)  Here is a three-part comparison piece featuring:  a)  Rick’s 1976 illustration “Elly” (which first appeared in the Kubert art school’s 1976 class zine PARADE OF GORE, later republished in issue #2 of Steve Bissette’s infamous horror anthology TABOO (Tundra Publishing).  b)  The original inspiration behind ‘Elly’; Jose Antonio Domingo’s ‘demon’ art from Marvel’s Monsters Unleashed #10 front cover. And lastly,  c)  Clive Barker’s similar looking demon, which appeared in TABOO #1.

5)  Regarding updates, etc. made to this site, from now Rick’s contributions will be ‘tagged’ with either RG – or – GRIMES. All other text in updates, etc. will be added for the most part, by myself, Ryan H. (RH) – this also goes for the featured ‘fun’ video clips, courtesy of youtube.com.
