Joey Manley, RIP
Various on-line avenues
in the hands of those close to the world of on-line comics in which he was a significant figure are being used this morning to note and mourn the passing of Joey Manley
. Manley passed away Thursday evening of causes related to pneumonia.
A one-time novelist, Manley was best known for the site Modern Tales
but also any number of popular aggregate and publishing services facilitating webcomics culture: Serializer
, Graphic Smash
and Webcomics Nation
among them. He was also an early podcast figure, again with a focus on webcomics culture and art.
Manley turned 48 in July. A full obituary should appear on this site next week. Our condolences to his partner, his family, his friends, the hundreds of comics-makers and tens of thousands of readers whose lives his touched.
