Gerry’s draftsmanship reached new levels when, inspired by the work of Moebius in the comic book Heavy Metal, he and good friend Wallace Ryan created and self-published two issues of Zeitgeist. Most of Gerry’s comics feature his existential hero Ira Zappa, whose adventures are a blend of space fantasy and his trademark sense of absurdity. Aside from some output created to entertain his sons Nick and Chris McGee, Gerry never returned to graphic storytelling in a significant way, although he had expressed interest in doing so after his planned retirement.
