By Request Extra: Please Consider Sending A Letter Or Note To Veteran Writer-About-Comics Tim O’Shea

Craig Fischer passed along the following.
Tim O'Shea, a writer about comics for both Robot 6 and Smash Pages, has struggled with brain cancer for over a year. Recently, Tim has been moved to hospice.

Tim is a friend of mine from multiple HeroesCons, so when I heard this sad news, I wrote him a letter and e-mailed it to his wife, Ellen Vance O'Shea. Ellen replied that my letter boosted Tim's spirit, so I suggested that Tim might also like to hear from other comics folk.

Ellen has given me permission to make a public announcement about Tim's condition, and to ask Tim's friends -- and fans of Tim's interviews and criticism that never met the man -- to write their own messages. All letters and good wishes for Tim can be sent directly to Ellen at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
Thanks, Craig.

Tim O'Shea is a really nice man, and a fervent believer in the value of comics as art and in those who felt the same way he did. Anything we can do to ease his passing I think we should do. If you've been a fan of Tim's writing, or a subject of his interest in comics, I hope you'll consider joining me in sending something along.

My kindest thoughts are with O'Shea and his family during what must be an extremely difficult time.
