Mr. Schrier, if you're out there, Clevelandish, I would love to hear from you. I'm a big fan of yours. Thanks for the good ol' daze.

Underground comix helped get me through a difficult adjustment to Army life back in the early 70s. None more so than those created by Fred Schrier and Dave Sheridan. I would come back to my quarters after a rough day and many times unwind by escaping into The Balloon Vendor and Mother's Oats Comix and such. Fred Schrier, who now goes by Alfred Schrier, was my favorite with his goofy, benign, zen zone-outs. He's now a kid's illustrator. I'll post more sometime, but this back cover one-pager is a good introduction to his comix and to a great idea.
