Just because you know it’s coming…

… doesn’t leave you any less sad. George Perez, comic book artist of great reknown, repute and influence, and a man nobody had a bad word to say about, died yesterday, aged 67, of cancer. The artist of The Avengers, The Justice League of America, Crisis on Infinite Earths and above all The New Teen Titans, without which there may well not have been a DC Comics for the last forty years, died without pain, in the midst of his family, or should I say the family related to him by blood and marriage: the whole damn comic book industry and its fans were his family and we all mourn our loss.
