Fans, Friends, Peers Note The Passing Of Tim O’Shea


I note with some sadness the passing of Tim O'Shea, a passionate interviewer about pop-culture subjects of which comics was a significant and meaningful sub-section. He was enthusiastic, always did his research and I think felt pride in being a part of a community of writers taking an art form's growth and maturity to readers maybe one, two, five at a time. He was also one of those rare writers specifically interested in creators early in their careers, a time when a reaction from a veteran writer can mean everything. He'll be very much missed. My condolences to his friends and family. He seemed a kind, generous man. I'm grateful I knew him.

There are people posting on Tim's public Facebook wall their memories and appreciations, and I hope you'll join me in checking in there over the next several days.
