RIP Kim Thompson (1956-2013)

The great Kim Thompson, co-publisher of Fantagraphics Books, died today. He changed the comics field for the better, and we are all poorer for his passing. Over on my other blog, See Hatfield, I have a brief tribute piece to Kim, as well as links to others. Please check it out, and keep Kim’s family, friends, and colleagues in your thoughts.
