The Abominable Fred Hembeck

Fred Hembeck is sort of like late-night television hosts or Sunday morning comic strips. Not funny, despite their stated purpose, but still having a hard-to-pinpoint value. I think it’s the fact that in all three cases they are institutions. We just assume they’ll be there. Hembeck has been putting out novelty Marvel books for as long I can remember. Dude is part of my life, regardless of the fact he’s never gotten more than a soft chuckle out of me. Shared history, folks. It’s what binds people and I’m bound to Fred Hembeck.

You can be bound to Fred Hembeck too. Check out this sketch card auction of Fred’s Abomination. For a low price, you can have this strangely compelling conversation piece taking up space in your home.
