I just heard that Bill Blackbeard, one of the greats in comic strip preservation, passed away last month.

Sad news.


 We do owe a hell of a debt to Blackbeard. I've got a copy of the Smithsonian Collection myself, and the local library has two text which he edited. This is frivilous, but I always assumed he was bearded, and I was suprised by the image that accompanied his photograph.

Don Marksten just passed away from info elsewhere.

Very, very sad news.
Thanks for letting us know Narf.

 Found this in my messages on Facebook, which I don't check often enough. It is from GiGi Dane, Don Markstein's widow: "Donald David Markstein, -- 1947 - 2012 comic book writer and www.toonopedia creator, died of respitory failure after a prolonged illness. His family can be contacted through" The message was dated March 11.

  Don's death is quite a loss to the comics community.
