Brilliant post. (I met David Weiss once, he was extremely lovely.)

1973 I was living for two weeks in his house, a kind of "community", in Zurich. He was drawing comics for his underground fanzine, then. And I tried to sell them on Zurich's streets :-)
Two years later he kindly has sent me a signed book (his "up and down town" with a personal dedication) and a three-page letter.
Yes, he was (and probably still is) a very lovely man.
