Brian Augustyn aged 67.

Sad to hear that, I enjoyed some of his work.
RIP

Sad news. I also enjoyed his work on The Flash.

Gotham by Gaslight is a great classic and a very influential book as well.

Truly terrible news. One of the all-time great artists to grace many covers, Ian Kennedy has died.

After Harryhausen and Willis O'Brien, he's the first SFX person I, and possibly many others in my generation, had heard of.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

I think Dr Who's Mat Irvine (still with us, as far as I know) has that distinction for me…

How could I forget Mat and his constant Saturday morning tv appearances.

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.

Didn't realise how much I had by Tom - also didn't realise Tom and Rick were brothers.  A sad loss.
