Neal Adams was such an influence on so much and his work in the late 60s and 70s was better than almost anything else out there and shaped the work of so many. Look at early work by Bill Sienkiewicz. Just a leader who drove what comics could look like forward.

Love and respect to his family and friends.

A sketch he did for Dredd although he never had any published prog work:

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.

Another comics legend has passed. George Perez after his long battle with cancer.

The term legend is often over used but in the case of Perez (as will Neil Adams) its well deserved. He has left so many beautiful stories behind, his legacy is quite something to behold.

leonid kravchuk, the first president of a democratic, independent ukraine (and who made his country a member of a very select club - just two strong - in giving up the entirety of their nuclear arsenal in return for future security guarantees from russia), has died aged 88.

Two masters of this thing we love.
