Sad news about Anthony Bourdain, always found his shows very entertaining.
His very recent Dark Horse comic Hungry Ghosts was great too.

Sad news about Bourdain. I enjoyed several of his books and television series'. Most recently the Get Jiro graphic novels. I worked in some kitchens in the 80s and I can say from experience his books were not embellished. RIP.

Leslie Grantham goes to the great Theatre in the sky. I'll always remember Dirty Den.

Sad news about Vinnie Paul. Pantera was one of my favourite bands, it was a shame they broke up. RIP.

Very sad news about Peter Firmin. Clangers and Bagpuss are some of my earliest television memories. RIP.
