Heart breaking news but let's keep our thingers crissed and hope he pull's through, my thoughts right now are with him and his family.

Comixology have a sale of Cooke's work right now, i'd advise we make the most of it and support hom whilst we still can.

I may be wrong, and I hope I am, but palliative care after aggressive cancer sounds pretty much like this is terminal.

After last year's experience with my wife, palliative care unfortunately means keeping the patient as comfortable and pain free until the end :( my thoughts go out to Mr Cooke and his family.

It's all right, that's in every contract.
That's what they call a sanity clause.
You can't fool me, there ain't no sanity clause.

Very much so, and that is deeply worrying.

Word on the grape vine is Mr. Cooke left this mortal coil sometime last night. This is a serious blow.

RIP

EDIT: Seemingly confirmed here, and it's all over Twitter. Damn.

A distinctive talent, comics are poorer for his loss.
Fuck cancer.
