  1. ANY comic fan who doesn’t know Denys Cowan should be ashamed, regardless of race.

  2. Mark Turner says:

    Love the work Denys Cowan did on Deathlok and Hardware….still have the first issue of both in my collection!

    • Hollie Buchanan says:

      Both are great, but The Question is where he first took my breath away. If you haven’t read that series, you should. That applies to … everyone.

      • Hollie,

        What’s “The Question?”

        • Russ Rogers says:


          WHO is “The Question”?

          What’s on second.

        • Hollie Buchanan says:

          For anyone who didn’t know, The Question (1987) was Denny O’Neil’s lesson in philosophy, politics, and morality (and martial arts) disguised as a sorta-super-hero book. Denny’s story and Denys’ breathtaking art made it one of the first new books to share with my new wife when it came out. Of course it knocked her socks off. So it’s reason #843 to love Denny and reason #1 to love Denys. If the trades came bundled with a sockless wife, sales would skyrocket. I need to go dig those out again.

    Expressed in my basso profundo sing song voice…”I’ve gotta signed Hardware!, I’ve gotta signed Hardwaaare!”

    With regard to the ‘TOO’ young blood, when I read about his egregious misstep, in my mind I heard Worf’s voice (when he assumed command of the Enterprise in order to deal with the Klingons coming out of cold sleep) saying to the captain…”YOU FOOOOOL!! Did it not occur to you that the man, the myth, the legend was standing right in front of you?!”

    • Not only did it not occur to him that Denys was standing right there, it didn’t occur to him to say; “Excuse me…” when he interrupted us.

    Ive attended the Black Panel and Nappy Hour for the past 3 Cons Ive attended (Mr Davis, you may remember me at the panel to celebrate Dwayne McDuffie, when I came to the mic and described conversing with him…)..I digress…and to not know who these illustrious iconic gentlemen are is a sacrilege. I still have people asking and conversing about the original Milestone titles and their greatness. If you know Milestone (Hardware, Icon, Blood Syndicate, Shadow Cabinet…) then you know innovation, daring, boldness and just plain bad-assery (yes, that is my phrase). I know Denys and you had to shake your literal and proverbial heads at that young ‘un’s display…Im at my desk shaking my head now, prepping a backhand…

    You honor me, great and noble sir…I look forward to the panels once again, though I will be hustling for my customers as a retailer, but Im stoked for the panels again…Thank you for being a class act…Continue to be, what I would like to call, the No Doze MoFo…cya soon…
