Did The Writer Michael Fleisher Pass Away Six Weeks Ago?

A CR reader named Benjamin Russell has looked into it, found this page but has found little else except a changing status on wikipedia.

Fleisher was one of the name-that-fans-knew writers of the 1970s, particularly for his work with the characters The Spectre and Jonah Hex. He also brought a lawsuit against Gary Groth, Fantagraphics and Harlan Ellison that is one of the big legal moments of 20th Century comics.

Update: Unless I'm being pranked -- and I can always be pranked -- this looks legit. My thanks to Mr. Russell. Condolences to the friends, family and fans of the late writer.
