    Carlos Ezquerra

    Another of the greats has gone, according to Ansible. I hope the obituary is tucked away at the bottom of the page as it was a late addition: the date given for his death is the first of this month.
  2. Comic artist Norm Breyfogle died on September 24th. That came as a huge shock to me, as he wasn't very old. Breyfogle will always be immortalized, in my eyes, as the artist with Alan Grant on his (to my view) definitive take on Batman. If you haven't read that 1980s Detective Comics and Batman run, and you love Batman or just comics in general, then you need to hunt down that period of Bat-history now. Amazing work. Plus, he did artwork on another of Grant's best comic book work, the Anarky mini-series. Breyfogle was the artist who drew Grant's story originally introducing the c

  5. Bernie Wrightson is gone. He's a famed comic book artist (mainly known for his horror genre work) and co-creator of the Swamp Thing, if there's anyone who doesn't know the name. I discovered the news on J.M. DeMatteis' blog, so that's the link I am including. http://www.jmdematteis.com/

    Steve Dillon

    I don't post here a lot anymore, but damn, Steve Dillon died. Way, way too young. His Hellblazer work with Garth Ennis was important to me. http://cbr.st/AFKWBiR
  7. I read in Comic Shop News that Alan Moore's almost brother Steven Moore died in March. He did some work for comic books, but probably wasn't that well known in comic circles...the majority of his work was in British comics during the 1980s, and keeping it in the last-name, but not actual, family by writing some Alan Moore projects. I know Moore more for his contributions for Fortean Times. I was surprised to see him gone. I had gotten a copy of Fortean Times for my birthday from my girlfriend. I hadn't read the magazine in a while, because it's hard to find on the news stands here now, and
  8. I just found out that underground comix creator Spain Rodriguez died, at the age of 72, on November 28th. He was most famous for his comic strip, Trashman. He recently had a collection of comics released called Cruisin' with the Hound, about his experiences in the alternative 1950s America.
  9. Breaking news, DC comic and animation writer has passed away! I am very shocked. As the co-creator of the Milestone imprint, I was very found of Static. And with All-Star Superman just coming out today, which he worked on. http://www.newsarama.com/comics/Dwayne-mcduffie-dead-110222.html
