Albert Morse: 1938-2006

imageAlbert Morse, one-time lawyer to R. Crumb and other cartoonists, a collector of original art and publisher of a self-named late-period underground comix title Morse's Funnies, died on January 22 from complications due to kidney disease. He was 67. My memory is that Morse's track record gaining satisfaction for Crumb during the "Keep on Truckin'" public domain fiasco, where Crumb's piece of art became for a time a ubiquitous, "Kilroy was Here"-style piece of public art, was less than exemplary.

On the other hand, I've never seen these photographs, and they're kind of nice.
