I illustrated a tribute to one of my friends who passed away in July. Dale Pople was a friend from my old Zetaman days. He kept in contact through social media long after I retired. He was a huge supporter of Totally Naked Man. At one point we were talking about putting together a Totally Naked Man package for Adult Swim. Dale’s influence is found in my comics. The story of S’p’r H’ro is a theme in Holly Wood: Space Diva. The spaceships in Zetaman are a recycled design from a movie project of Dale’s.

A writer friend of mine wrote a good blog about Dale at https://teakrulos.com/2020/07/20/death-of-a-superhero/.

Dale was always a supporter of other people. He supported their projects and their personal growth. I wish I had more words. I don’t know what else to say except I will miss him. And thank you, Dale, for the impact you’ve made in my life.
