Rest In Peace Edward T Summer. Among other accomplishments the author/editor of Uncle Scrooge McDuck: His Life and Times and proprietor of the very first comic book store in Manhattan [if not NYC] in 1971, Supersnipe Comics, passed away last night, Nov 13, 2014. We believe he was 68.
Our condolences to his friends and family. He is missed. Here we see him in the 1970s when he took his friend George Lucas over to meet Frank Frazetta. Ed was also a producer of the first Conan movie and instrumental in Steranko getting the Raiders of the Lost Ark assignment from Lucas.
