Oh that's just horrible news, terrible. Love and condolances to his family. I sure we'll all be talking about his amazing legacy when we've had time to absorb this horrible news.

Sad news, he was one of the great ones.
When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

I like to think that he's enjoying a reunion with Carlos Ezquerra and Norm Breyfogle somewhere in the Great Beyond.

Very sad, a prodigious talent. Gone into the great singularity along with his Blackhawk characters.

2000 AD tribute to Alan:

That's a great tribute. And that horoscope story, though I've heard it many times before, never fails to make me laugh.

That is a lovely tribute. Goodbye Aaln1, 2000ad wouldn't be 2000ad without you.
