Over at The Comics Journal the tributes to Maurice Sendak are pouring in.

Sendak, who passed away this past Tuesday at age 83, contributed one cover to The New Yorker, and in the same issue (September 27, 1993) contributed a two page spread, In The Dumps, co-written/drawn with Art Spiegelman. Mr. Sendak also contributed a Storyboard to the issue of January 18, 1993.
