    1)  Rick’s previously unpublished three page comic, “The Struggles of Huggles” (1987/1999), has just been published in Issue #8 {VIII} (23/06/2010) of Díre McCain & D.M. Mitchell’s online art / culture magazine, PARAPHILIA – http://www.paraphiliamagazine.com/. Comments from Rick regarding this story are also now available to read here: STORIES …/(2010) a.

2)  To mark the 34th ‘birthday’ (as of May 01…) of Rick’s oldest character ‘Weird Dick’ (“Weird Dick and the Professor” (1976), “Head Cheese” (1981), etc.), here is a special piece (with June 2010 comments, see link) devised for a then 1977 Joe Kubert School of Art hypothetical book assignment. The image is also available to view in a much larger (and clearer) dimension here: WD & Prof. Happy 34th Birthday, Weird Dick!

3)  And lastly, here are some kind words recently received via Facebook email regarding Rick’s “The Puzz Fundles” (1984/86) comic series, by fellow comics artist / etc. Frank Panucci (cheers, Frank!):

“Puzz Fundles is the best thing ever. The Fundles and related comics are powerful, essential work, a…venting of the brainstem.”
