Denny O'Neil was a sweetheart of a man, who I had the pleasure of meeting on multiple occasions at conventions over the years. He was always cordial, good for a story of two, and really cared about comics as an industry and art form. He also wrote for BC in the past, which always made me smile when I thought about it. I write for the same site Denny O'Neil once wrote for. Wild. When he passed away last June, I was pretty sad, so I dove into some of his work I had not revisited in a bit, including his stories in Epic Illustrated, some of his most underrated work. On auction right now at ComicConnect is a bound version of those stories, from O'Neil's personal library. Sitting at $65, it would be a bargain to grab something like this. Check out the pics of the bound volumes below.
