Updates on Various Comics Passings
* the Tulsa World
has launched a memorial web site devoted to the late Doug Marlette
, including a selection of his work. The World
was I believe Marlette's last full-time employer.
* a fine set of testimonials and a few pieces of art, including that one at left, on the passing of veteran British artist Phil Gascoine may be found here
. I've had e-mail from three artists in the last 72 hours all mention in passing that Gascoine was a nice man, all unsolicited, something I've never seen before.
* our gathering of links into a Collective Memory
related to the passing of artist Mike Wieringo, which hit the comics community one week ago, continues with, among others, a new round-up of creator testimonials at Newsarama
, a sensitive report from the funeral by Jeff Parker
and a nice tribute at Marvel.com
