Dave Stevens, creator of the Rocketeer , pin-up artist extrordinaire and all round nice guy has died.
He is well remembered here .
I did not know him, but I am aware of one particular example of his classiness.
He made some money doing pictures of Betty Paige ( he based a character in the Rocketeer on her) long after she had retired.
No one knew who she was and her image was considered to be in the public domain.
Dave Stevens tracked her down….and paid her royalties.
