    Oh damnit, Gerber was so awesome on titles like Howard the Duck and Man-Thing. And he was doing a current story for DC that I guess will be finished by someone who isn't Steve Gerber...man.

    Obit from Gerber's close friend:

    http://www.newsfromme.com/archives/2008_02_11.html#014809

    Specifically, Gerber was story editor on Season 3, although he didn't write any episodes himself.

    He also wrote one of my all-time favorite GI Joe episodes: "There's No Place Like Springfield" where Shipwreck gets knocked unconscious during a rescue op and wakes up several years later to a world where Cobra has been defeated and he's got a wife and kid. It blew my mind when I saw it, and then it ended on a cliffhanger and I don't think I slept at all that night anticipating how it would end in the next episode.

    I remember that episode quite well, I loved it.

    Too bad though, I never like seeing this kind of headline.
