Fletcher Hanks, Jr., RIP
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Paul KarasikFletcher Hanks 23 Mar 2008 6:21 PM

HanksJr_WithBook.jpgPaul Karasik just sent along the unfortunate news that Fletcher Hanks, Jr., passsed away this week at the age of 90. Hanks, known by friends as "Christy," is the son of comic book pioneer Fletcher Hanks, Sr.

Christy was unaware of his estranged father's history in comics until Paul hunted him down to learn more about the (still) mysterious cartoonist. Paul sent over these photos shortly after completing the book "I Shall Destroy All the Civilized Planets"-- a collection of Hanks' comic book output. The picture below shows Christy's discovery that the book was dedicated to him.

As a pilot, inventor, and WWII veteran, Christy lived quite a life himself. Please read the obituary here.
