RIP Russell Johnson

Russell Johnson, AKA The Professor from “Gilligan’s Island” passed away today. Unlike a lot of the celebrities that I’ve idolized, I actually got to meet Russell, or “R.J.” as he called himself on a couple of occasions. Once was at a “Mystery Science Theater 3000″ convention where he explained to Rex Reason what a bong was. Years later, I was able to convince him to write the forward to my fourth Melonpool collection, “Castaway” which I consider to be the high point of my cartooning career.

Today we lost a great man. If some medium isn’t able to make contact with you up there, I’m Bob Denver has something to do with it.
