    Here’s an eyeball popper! Crazy to think that it’s been 37 years since Jeff Gaither gave us his wrap-around cover for Your Flesh #13. I wrote the following for his website a few years ago and from where I’m sitting still every bit as accurate:

    “Gaither’s grotesqueries are immediately identifiable despite their roots in everything from Wm. Gaines and the crew over at Tales From The Crypt, (Basil Wolverton, anyone?), right up to the first wave of the comic underground with the likes of the late S. Clay Wilson (RIP) and the Zap Comix crew at its prow, and with an extra added dollop of the overripe visual fruit otherwise known as Ed Big Daddy Roth and those that made all that kulture custom car stuff thrum like a pair of popping eyeballs a la the Tex Avery wolf (though I admit I’m rather partial to Droopy). Jeff’s line work is clean yet rococo with detail—the eyes reel. Nothing stale here. Monsters, monsters, monsters…. The kid came charging out of the XEX Grafix mini-comics crew in the early 80s and has been chugging hard ever since. If you haven’t peeped him yet you need to get on that, stat, jack!”
