happy birthday, C.C. Beck!

Talk about getting this in under the wire: it's 11:22 PM and I just learned, courtesy of James Lileks, that today is the birthday of the late, great C.C. Beck, comic book artist extraordinaire. He drew Captain Marvel's adventures for Fawcett, and later made a return to the character for DC in the seventies (but left the series over creative differences). His clean, cheerful art is some of the best stuff in comics, and I love his work very much. So if you've got any Captain Marvel lying around, the next half-hour would be a good time to reread 'em.
