883rd Post - NYT: Comics' Gargantua of the Gross

Been a big fan of Basil Wolverton's for many years now.

If you have seen "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" you have seen a little bit of his work. Remember the scene where Eddie (Bob Hoskins') character is locked in a building and sees the outline of a beautiful woman, only to realize it is an ugly one? Eddie even calls her "Lena" as he runs away. That is a Wolverton creation named Lena the Hyena. How the character first saw the light of day is explained in the article you will read if you click the link below. As a tease he had help from Frank Sinatra, Boris Karloff, and Salvadore Dali!
