I've compiled information about Ben on my blog (http://alphabettenthletter.blogspot.com/2013/08/creator-ben-oda.html). The best information on him was his DC profile back in 1980. Also included are the CBG obituary and Andy Helfer's remembrance.

With Larry Hama's help, I explain how Ben and Irv Watanabe were morphed into "Ben Watanabe" for an episode of the TV series, Murder, She Wrote.

Ben also did quite a bit of work for Skywald and Alan Hewetson on the 1970s black and white horror magazine publications Nightmare, Psycho, and Scream... Irv Watanabe and Jean Izzo also did quite a bit of lettering for Al and Skywald as well...

Ben was extremely prolific. I'll be reading some obscure material somewhere and his work will pop up. I especially love his Famous Monsters article title logos.
