R.I.P. Will Eisner

Comic book legend Will Eisner has passed away at the age of 87. He had recently undergone bypass surgery and apparently died in the post-operative complications. I consider the interview I did with him to be one of the high points of my career. His work was fantastic and he was an incredibly nice and giving man. As recently as a few weeks ago, he was answering questions on the Yahoo mailing list devoted to his works and career.

Goodbye, sir. You will be missed.
