Dial E For Eternity--No, Not That Orion!!

The title was cut off this text piece in the only version available to me. It's called "King Of The Jungle," so, no big surprise, there's a lion.



3/4 done, and really, not a thing has happened. Why are we here?!?

Orion--not the new God, but the Hunter!

Cute ending, I guess, but like most of the text pieces, a whole lotta hoo-ha over nothing much.

Hi Snell, long time fan first time caller,

Are you okay? You didn't post in a couple of days (usually you let us know if that happens) and a lot of people were thinking you were dead (literally). Is everything alright? Thanks again for all of your hard work in running this blog.

Sleestak said...

Can anyone give us an update on Snell?

Dave-El said...

I think the Kid Eternity posts were set up by Snell in advance.

I know someone commented on the last post. Unfortunately he passed away on the 15th, police said natural causes. I think he had some scheduled posts set up.

Erich said...

I am very sorry to hear that. I only occasionally commented on this blog, but I was a regular reader and always enjoyed his posts. I'm grateful for all the years of entertainment and for the love that went into his writing this blog.

It was a very important part of his life, and he mentored and made an impact on the lives of many students. Brian was a Chicago Cubs and University of Michigan football fan. He was also an avid collector of comic books. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Marie and James Snell and Carl and Corinne Warwick. Brian is survived by his parents; sister, Tracy Snell (Kaare Wieneke); Aunt Jo Warwick (Jerry Oster); and special friends, Craig and Dawn Beresford. Cremation has taken place.

This blog has given me so much to laugh about on the bus going to work and throughout the day....My condolences to Snell's family and friends....rest in peace.

Madman2001 said...

I am so sad. This blog was the very best comics blog on the internet, and I am already missing my daily dose of Snell. Rest in peace, dude !!

P. S. The obit was wrong about his date of birth -- it was 1964, not 1954.

JohnnyBob said...

Oh wow.

Big loss to anyone who loves comics but didn't take them too seriously.

Cheers Snell.
