Farewell to Kim Thompson

Kim helped me move The End #1 and it's recent expansion through production, and he was always easygoing, attentive and a pleasure to work with. But I never knew him much more than that. Still, it feels like one of the quiet giants of the medium, is gone. Someone on who's shoulders I've been standing all this time and not even hardly realizing it. My heart goes out to the folks at Fantagraphics who knew him best and will miss him the most. Gary's piece at the Fanta Blog is very much worth reading. I expect more rememberances will follow. Thanks, Kim, for making comics richer.
