Very Happy People - 1999

Longtime comics guru Kirby Gee passed away yesterday from apparent heart failure, which is a fucking joke since Kirby had one of the biggest hearts I’ve ever known. I cannot tell you how miserable I am, as are all those who knew him. We didn’t hang out like we used to, but it was always a comfort to know that he was just across town if you needed him.

If you need me, I’ll be at the bar.

Kirby’s the guy in the center of the last panel. This was at the high point of the Big Easy ComiCon in 1999. We had a fantastic dinner at Mulatte’s and hours of frolicking in the Quarter. We found a bar with a photo booth and Kirby screamed “PHOTO BOOTH!!” and dove in… and went right through to the other side and fell on his ass.
