Kim Thompson is dead

Shit. 56 years old. Too young.

First Thought: Does this mean I’ll see fewer awesome Euro comics from Fantagraphics?

Second Thought: Christ, I’m an entitled arsehole, the guy just died ffs

Third Thought: Actually, isn’t that a sign of how good he was at his job — actually, his calling? RIP, Mr Thompson, one of the all-time greatest advocates that comics has ever seen. Here’s to all the great comics you never had a chance to show us.

    Without Kim Thompson, I would not be working in comics at all. Rest in peace, Kim. I’m sorry I never got to meet you in Seattle.
