Kris Kovick
Last Updated December 18th, 2008

Kris Kovick, cartoonist, writer and storyteller, died of cancer on October 26, 2001. She was "the Mayor of Norwich Street" in San Francisco, and known as "Uncle Kris" to her many dear friends. Kris was born in Fresno, and raised in Wilsonia, CA and was gender-bending and performing in public when she got in trouble in kindergarten for impersonating Elvis. Kris distinguished herself as a gay and women's rights organizer at Fresno State in the 1970s. After five years in Seattle, she settled in SF in 1980, and became heavily involved in the Bernal Heights community. The first woman to enter the printing trade in the Pacific Northwest, Kris worked as an etcher and scanner operator for twenty-five years. She made an indelible mark across the country as a cartoonist, humor writer, journalist in local gay newspapers, performance art and spoken word producer, and mentor. She is widely credited with founding the women's spoken word scene in San Francisco, hosting a monthly show at Red Dora's  [More...]

Run. Run from your life, from the guys who pay a twelve-year old kid to get sucked, run for your life. Run fast enough, and you'll be free of all those people, run seven miles a second, and you'll be free of gravity, whatever that might mean. This is what David Wojnarowicz seems to be doing on the cover of Seven Miles a Second, a powerful autobiographical graphic novel drawn by James Romberger, a then-newcomer to Vertigo who later worked on short stories for various anthologies from this publisher. This volume tells the story of Wojnarowicz's life, from his days on the streets as a kid, hustling and staying barely alive, to his adult self, an artist living with AIDS. Wojnarowicz, who died in 1992 aged 37, was an artist who left an important and varied body of work, including paintings and books. Seven Miles a Second was completed after his death by Romberger, a friend of his. The texts are all written by Wojnarowicz, some of them having been taken from  [More...]

Chris Companik
Last Updated April 10th, 2008

Chris has drawn comics before he could write, and his two current strips HIV + Me and 881 Midtown Court are as different as night and day. HIV + Me is a monthly syndicated strip as a "how-to" guide to living with HIV. Sometimes controversial, often tasteless, but always irreverent, it began attracting national attention after POZ Magazine ran his "Sleeping Beauty" strip (criticizing the lack of needle exchange programs) and began its national rollout. The strip now appears monthly in A&U Magazine. 881 has its roots back in the early 80s when a local bar magazine wanted a serialized "gay Luke & Laura" strip (and being the General Hospital fan he is…) jumped all over it. It now runs in the British gay comic book anthology Buddies. When not doing comics, Chris also produces for Atlanta's People TV, including his monthly series Giant Size Comic Book Show. Among other recent productions have been the roundtable discussion show  [More...]

Kate Worley
Last Updated April 10th, 2008

Best known for her writing on the successful, adults-only series, Omaha The Cat Dancer, Kate Worley has worked on projects as diverse as Gay Comics, the 1995 Wonder Woman Annual, the Universal Horror Movie trading card set, John Jakes' Mullkon Empire for Tekno Comics, Roger Rabbit Adventures, and the new Jonny Quest series for Dark Horse. Kate publicly came out as bisexual in the Omaha letters column in 1988, making her and her then-husband Reed Waller the first openly bisexual creators in comics. There are several collected volumes of Omaha in print, and Worley and Waller had reunited to work on new Omaha material, but unfortunately she passed away after a battle with cancer on June 6th, 2004. Donations to help her family recover from the medical expenses and other burdens are greatly appreciated. You can send support to her husband Jim Vance at jim1vance@aol.com via PayPal. Donations, well-wishes, and nice things of any  [More...]

Duffy Vohland
Last Updated April 10th, 2008

Duffy Vohland was an artist in the early 1970s for Marvel on such titles as Savage Sword of Conan and Super-Villain Team-Up. At first working for Charlton Comics, he became one of the members of the "Marvel Bullpen" and helped bring John Byrne into the Marvel fold. Vohland passed away in 1982. The following remembrance was written by DC Comics editor Paul Kupperberg, who, along with Prism Comics president Roger Klorese, used to assist Duffy in writing and production work: Duffy (born Everett Eugene, a constant source of embarrassment to him; his Dad nicknamed him Duffy, after the radio program Duffy's Tavern) was a dear, dear friend of mine for many years. He was part of the Indiana comics "mafia," and we first "met" when he started writing for the fanzines Paul Levitz and I did in the early 1970s (The Comic Reader and Etcetera). Duffy was a big, lovable screw-up. Not an evil bone in his body, but a definite love for the wicked. He was a big guy with  [More...]
