100 Comics Positives For 2013: Kim Thompson Was Remembered With A Significant Amount Of Joy

There were any number of lovely tributes to the late Kim Thompson in 2013, including the fun portrait by his friend Jim Blanchard shown above and Gary Groth's terribly moving description of their goodbye conversation. A favorite for me was one I witnessed live and in person. At the Eisner Awards several distinguished personalities ranging from Dave Lasky to Chip Kidd to Neil Gaiman took time out of a slightly raucous evening to express their thanks and admiration for the impact that Thompson had on their creative lives. It was like having Kim back for a little while, awkwardly interjecting into a rolling conversation about all things comics.
