100 Comics Positives For 2013: This Richard Thompson Photo
This is the year between the year Richard Thompson put his pen down in terms of making the daily comic strip he was born to do, Cul De Sac (2012), and the year where we get all of the strip in one splendid package as well as a major exhibition of work from all facets of his career at Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum. Chris Sparks won the Bob Clampett Humanitarian Award at the Eisner Awards for the admirable charity work he's done for Parkinson's related causes in Richard's name.
Caitlin McGurk is curating Richard's retrospective. The above is a photo from her visit with the cartoonist -- he had broken his hip and was in recovery, a recovery made a bit more difficult for his ongoing battle with Parkinson's. He gave permission for this photo to go out, and Caitlin passed it along and posted it on her Facebook feed.
