I, too, am a huge fan of Berni! Had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of times... very nice, personable guy.
Agreed. I've seen him show up at almost all the So. Cal convention show's I've attended the last year and has been nice in signing the books I've brought to him. Only disappointed that he doesn't do sketch commissions at the shows when I've asked.
Really got into his art after picking up several issues of Tales of the Unexpected this year. Finally broke down and bought a preliminary art page from him last weekend at LBCC since he had a portfolio of art that was finally within my price range.
