Rick Veitch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1030 words)
Veitch studied cartooning at the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art, and was in the first class to graduate from the school in 1978, along with his future long-time collaborators Steve Bissette and John Totleben.
Veitch had already made his publishing debut prior to attending the Kubert School: in 1972, he illustrated the horror parody Two-Fisted Zombies (written by his brother Tom Veitch), but this one-shot failed to make a splash in the fading underground comics field of the '70s.
Although DC had approved Veitch's initial script for the Jesus story, the issue was later deemed too inflammatory and was cancelled at the last minute, a decision which may have been influenced by the then-recent criticism of the film The Last Temptation of Christ.
