I woke up this morning (it was still the 28th, then) and saw that The Comics Reporter had included a link to this very blog. Very exciting, got a little spike in viewers, always appreciated. Unfortunately, I then learned that Underground Cartoonist Spain Rodriguez passed away this morning. I recently read my first Spain story, at a friend’s house on a visit back to Portland. I had been aware of his work for a while, and got to see him speak about his Che biography at Wordstock years back. Clearly a very important, loved and influential cartoonist, who will be missed. The upside is that I still have a world of his work to discover, and really, isn’t that why we do this, to leave something for the world? R.I.P. SPAIN.
