In Memory of Steve Gerber

This is truly sad news; Steve Gerber wrote comics that said something profound about what it means to be a human being, about what is difficult about being in the world, and about what makes the struggle worthwhile and even noble. Below is a link to an essay I wrote some time ago about my favorite Steve Gerber story from Marvel Two-in-One #7. I respectfully dedicate it to Mr. Gerber’s memory.
