And by “our” I mean the whole of the comic industry.
As reported and posted at other places already, Rory Root, the man behind Comic Relief passed away yesterday.
I wasn’t his best friend, or a contemporary, but he treated me as one. Whether it was at APE or SDCC, seeing Rory there just made you feel good. Like things were OK, and that we were doing something right. His suggestions I always took to heart, whether it was a dining establishment, or bringing a book back into print.
As someone has said, our little universe has just gotten smaller, and it makes me sad. I’ll miss you Rory. Thanks for everything.
