Dave Stevens passed away…

just two days ago, on March 10.

only 52, he was probably most widely known for creating The Rocketeer in 1982.

he was also well-known for his pin-up art, modeled on Bettie Page.

quote of the day:

“I’m not really sure what social message my art carries, if any. And I don’t really want it to carry one. I’m not interested in the subject matter to try to teach society anything, or to try to better our world in any way.” – Roy Lichtenstein
