I just saw this wonderful tribute to Dave Stevens and his creation, The Rocketeer. Here’s the link:
On a sad related note, I was informed that Dave’s mom, Carolyn Stevens, has passed away. I am happy that she got to see the huge and enthusiastic celebration on Tuesday night of her son and his creation. She and Dave’s sister Jenny received a big round of applause when it was noted from the stage that they were in attendance. I had a nice chat with her afterwards at the VIP party hosted by Taylor White/Creature Features and Disney.
I met Dave’s parents over twenty years ago. Upon talking to his mom and dad, I could easily see the origins of Dave’s sweet natured goodness. They were both so (rightfully) proud of their son — as are we all.
Carolyn was planning to visit me and other friends of Dave at Comic-Con this year. She will be missed.
