Rush Limbaugh, the controversial US radio personality and political commentator, has died aged 70 after suffering from lung cancer.

Good.
You're a dark horse, Boots.

Victor Ambrus, illustrator, at 85. You might not know the name but you'll recognise his work.

RIP him and Si Spencer too.

The best in his field for so long, a master of letting the viewer's imagination fill in the gaps so that what you looked at appeared whole and convincing.  (Briefly taught my missus in a past century, although it didn't take). RIP.

Sad news about Si Spencer. I had no idea he was a scriptwriter for TV, but you forget script bots have another life outside 2000AD and The Megezine.

Very sad news about Si Spencer. I don't know anything of his work beyond Tharg's boundaries but that piece on Down the Tubes painted a vivid picture.

Not as unexpected, perhaps, but Lawrence Ferlinghetti - poet, publisher and enthusiastic promoter of the Beat poets - has died at the ripe old age of 101.

I don't see it mentioned earlier, but the electronic musician/producer/etc SOPHIE died a few weeks ago in an accident. Shockingly young.
We never really die.

One that sneaked past me last month was the death of Remy Julienne, stunt driver and co-ordinator on the Italian Job and various Bond movies, aged 90 from Covid.
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

LG Petrov, frontman of Entombed.
Knew this was likely after his cancer diagnosis, but still horrible news.
You're a dark horse, Boots.
