His series of autobiographies are a joy to read.  Think I've read them at least three times each.

Aw, no.  I liked his dark and textured art a lot, and it was the perfect fit for Creep.

Saddened to hear of Kevin Cullen's passing. Condolences to his family and friends. As regards the loss of some of Tooth's greatest creators, it really has been a scunner of a year.

Also sorry to hear of the passing of one of Sesame Street's greatest. Another childhood memory is lost. :'(

So saddened that the prolific Auberjonois, aka Odo of Deep Space Nine among many other things, has left us at the not-unimpressive age of 79.  Just watched him in an episode of Night Gallery, too, playing a jerk as usual, which he always did very well - though I remember being so surprised when he turned up in Uncharted 2 as an immortal Nazi-turned Buddhist priest guarding the ruins of Shamballa, which in retrospect must have been the easiest casting decision in history, because if you wanted an actor who could pack a lot of backstory into even a straightforward vocal performance, Rene was your man.
As can easily be discerned from his social media activity, he was still very active on the convention circuit, thanks to his Trek work and long career in animation guaranteeing him a constant string of younger fans to whom he always seemed to be very kind.

An instantly recogisable actor who seemed to be on telly my entire life, but made such an impact on me in DS9. Far from being another Spock wannabe, his wonderfully nuanced performance as Odo somehow sold all the complexities that the character was at the heart of: law and order during occupation, small town Sheriff when the Federales arrive, lost child of a malevolent empire, lover, peacekeeper, scion. Rene always comes across in interviews and memoirs as a down-to-earth gent. RIP.

That is sad. I loved him in Boston Legal too - nobody could do restrained rage and incredulity wrapped around love and respect like he did. And that voice!

~~~^~~~~~~~

Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Gutted.  For me his performance in MASH will always be the standout of a long and distinguished career.
