Loc: Oklahoma City, OK
I don't have a pic of it, but a local collector friend of mine showed me his copy of King Kong #1 signed on the bottom of the front cover by Dave Stevens. I'm obviously trying to buy it from him.
"Everything you do is based on the choices you make. It's not your parents, your past relationships, your job, the economy. the weather, an argument, or your age that is to blame. You and only you are responsible for every decision and choice you make, period."

My curiosity tracked this down from News-a-rama.com. Not meant to burst any bubbles, but Dave did have a hand in it.
Nrama:One of the big things of the book is the lost Dave Stevens cover – a great artist and a great guy, and someone whose work and characters have received renewed respect since his passing. Tell us a bit about this cover and how it came about -- and possibly share a story about Dave if you can.
Burden: I think it was at Dallas or San Diego Comic-Con. Well, Dave and I and Bob Chapman of Graphitti Designs and John Koukasakis were sitting around in the bar after the show that day. I think we were waiting for someone to come down, and we were all going go out and eat dinner. I was drawing up some art for the next day – to sell at the show, ya know – and Dave’s sitting there, and I drew a real hot space lady, rocketship girl. And I put the works into it. I was going to impress Dave, I guess.
So I show it to him: “Dave, whaddaya think? How ‘bout that?” And he smiled and grabbed it out of my hand, and began tweaking it. Now, I’d spent about 10 or 12 minutes on it, myself. But about a minute later, Dave hands it back to me and – wow – this thing looks great. Un- efffing- believable. I mean I could have worked on that drawing for the rest of the night, and it would have never looked that good. It was like watching Zorro or Bruce Lee. That guy was good. That was a Salieri moment for me, and it was like seeing Wolfgant Amadeus Mozart at work.
Cops Lives Matter! It could be chanted sooner or later.
Laugh all you want at my prepping. Just don't be the first to knock on my door when the SHTF.
The name is Pym, Hank Pym and yes, I created Ultron.
