BODE, Vaughn (Frederick)
(1941-1975)
   US COMICS artist and writer with a bold, loose line who created a world of charming and whimsical - if somewhat cutesy - fantasy characters; the most famous of these were Cheech Wizard - a strange figure almost entirely engulfed in a star-spangled hat - a bevy of little busty sexpots and a number of almost indistinguishable reptilian characters. VB began by providing amateur material for FANZINES, and in 1969 won a HUGO for Best Fan Artist. From 1970 until his premature death he worked professionally for Cavalier and National Lampoon, and published his own comic book, Junkwaffel (1972-4), creating a number of oddball joke strips and short stories, plus a few longer ones. He won a Yellow Kid Award in 1975. His sf creations - apart from 14 covers for sf magazines (1967 onward), such as If and Gal-included the strips Zooks (1983), Sunpot (1984; see also GALAXY SCIENCE FICTION) and Cobalt 60, the latter being continued after VB's death, rather poorly, by his son Mark Bode in Epic.
