Legendary ZAP cartoonist S. Clay Wilson has passed into the void. He was the creator of the Checkered Demon, Rudy the Dyke and hundreds of other despicable characters.
He had been bedridden for years after being found beaten and unconscious in the street after returning home from a neighbor’s one night. No one has ever found out what happened to put him in that condition.
He has been cared for all this time by his long time partner, Lorraine Chamberlain. (Photo by Jackie Estrada)
