I'm going to re-post mostly the same list I had last year. I picked ancient people who were professionals in the field of comic books, and I had assumed that at least some of them must be on their last legs, and that there would be an abundance of comics-releated deaths in 2017... and there were, including near-misses from my list like Dan Spiegle, Berni Wrightson, Joan Lee, Sam Glanzman, Fabulous Flo Steinberg, and Len Wein, seemingly everybody except the people that I selected. Very frustrating. Nonetheless, I remain convinced that the Black Racer is coming...

Oh, and I'm adding Barbara Walters so as to head off any whining about how this is "themed" list or whatever.


Al Jaffee 3/13/1921
"Smilin'" Stan Lee 12/28/1922
Russ Heath 9/29/1926
Ramona Fradon 10/1/1926

"Sturdy" Steve Ditko 11/2/1927
"Mirthful" Marie Severin 8/21/1929
Barbara "Baba Wawa" Walters 9/25/1929
"Jazzy" John Romita Sr. 1/24/1930
"Laughin'" Larry Lieber 10/26/1931
"Our Pal" Sal Buscema 1/26/1936
"Active" Alex Nino 5/1/1940
"Groovy" Gary Friedrich 8/21/1943



Alternates:

"Jaunty" Jim Steranko 11/5/1938
"Dandy" Denny O'Neil 5/3/1939

I tend to go high risk/high reward (i.e., young-ish folks that will give a decent amount of points should they shuffle off). This past year demonstrated the "high risk" part of that strategy, with no deaths from my list. I'm just straight rolling over my 2017 list into 2018.

This list has a bit of a through line -- relatively young folks with a (sometimes tenuous) connection to Chicago -- but I consider the connection too weak to post as themed list in the the new version of the game. If I can muster the energy, I might throw together a proper themed list for the other thread. (The themed version is a great idea, phungi!)


Clean List

Heather Mack
Chief Keef
Lil Durk
Jereme Richmond
Louis King Johnson Jr.
Jesus Alfredo Guzman Salazar
Jeremiah Ratliff
Giuliana Rancic
Jesse Jackson Jr.
Jose Canseco
Melodie Gliniewicz
William Perry
Joe Walsh

No alternates... will take my chances that all the above 13 are still alive and valid picks!


With Commentary. Current age (or thereabouts) in parentheses:
  • Heather Mack (21) -- Co-perpetrator in the Bali suitcase murder case. Serving prison time in Indonesia. From a Chicago suburb.
  • Chief Keef (22) -- a/k/a Keith Cozart, perpetually troubled "drill" rapper from Chicago. For a while he was popping up in the local news about monthly for yet another DUI, drug charge, shooting incident, etc.
  • Lil Durk (25) -- a/k/a Durk Banks, another drill rapper from Chicago that seems to find annual trouble with gun charges. His manager was gunned down in 2015.
  • Jereme Richmond (26) -- Former University of Illinois basketball player frequently in trouble with the law. Native of north suburbs.
  • Louis King Johnson Jr. (30) -- Chicago-based drill rapper better known as "King Louie" or "King L." Shot in the head in December 2015.
  • Jesus Alfredo Guzman Salazar (30) -- Son of drug kingpin Joaquín Guzmán. Recently kidnapped and released. Indicted in a Chicago court (though still roaming Mexico, I think?).
  • Jeremiah Ratliff (36) -- Defensive lineman fired from the Chicago Bears in October 2015 after bizarre behavior and outbursts. Committed DUI a couple years ago.
  • Giuliana Rancic (43) -- TV personality who has battled cancer on and off. Lives in Chicago.
  • Jesse Jackson Jr. (52) -- Son of famed civil rights leader. Former Chicago Congressman. Out of prison after serving time for campaign fraud. In the middle of a rough divorce. Has been battling bi-polar disorder and depression for several years.
  • Jose Canseco (53) -- Former baseball player with penchant for risky behavior. Played for the White Sox in his final MLB season.
  • Melodie Gliniewicz (53) -- Widow of Joe Gliniewicz, a cop from the far northwest suburbs who committed suicide (but staged things to appear as if he was killed in the line duty) to cover up fraud. Melodie is in trouble for her involvement in the scheme.
  • William "The Fridge" Perry (55) -- Former Chicago Bear.
  • Joe Walsh (56) -- Former congressman representing northern suburbs. Current talk radio blowhard in Chicago.

Umm. Hey, I have to beg a favor. Can I still submit a list, even if I just play for fun, and promise not to claim the tiara even if I score the most points?

Here's what happened.

On Dec. 29, the fan on my laptop blew out. I could not get it fixed, and did not have access to the list I was working on, nor full access to another computer. I just today got another laptop up and running and pulled stuff off the one with the broken fan.

So essentially I had no access to my list to post it last night.

Awaiting the gamemaster's decision.

In the spirit of the game, I am fine with your posting a list which I will append with a "Scarlett Asterisk"
