Hi Eric,
I'm told Angelo Torres is still with us.

Re: Obituaries - Gary Friedrich

With permission, Roy Thomas posted this to the Grand Comics Database list yesterday:

Hi List--

I won't go into details at this point, but I wanted to mention that one
of my oldest and dearest friends, Gary Friedrich, passed away last
night, from the effects of Parkison's, which he had had for several
years.  That and his near-total hearing loss had left him feeling
isolated in recent years, and his wife Jean seems content that he is
finally at peace.  As many of you will know, he did considerable work
for Marvel during the late 1960s and 1970s, and for Charlton in the
1960s, including a remembered run on SGT. FURY, stints on CAPTAIN
AMERICA, DAREDEVIL, SHIELD, and others, and of course the basic
concept/creation of the motorcycle-riding Ghost Rider at Marvel.  I'd
know Gary since I was in college and he still in high school, when he
came to work at the Palace Theatre in Jackson, MO, and some of my
happiest memories of our days in the rock band he founded circa 1962 and
which existed for a couple of years.

Best wishes,

Roy

Thanks for sharing that Bob.  The rock band ending brought a smile to my face.

I've heard today that voice actor, artist, comics and cartoon historian, art spotter HAMES WARE has passed away.

Thankfully his notes had been passed along for posterity to Columbia University.

Jones was especially an ability. To me despite everything I cannot move beyond my first notice of the work being "like" Frazetta yet not as much detail. Jones dependably resembled an impressionistic adaptation of a reasonable painter. I know my craftsman taste is foul yet I constantly considered the sensible painter as the more skilled. I know the reasons that aren't generally the situation yet that is the means by which it registers to me. Not to detract from Jones some awesome stuff. Excellent Idyll statue. Made the most of your review Jim

Hello everyone,
I've just learned some very sad news from Roygbiv666 and confirmed by Darrin Wiltshire that Richard David Boucher (Mr_Goldenage) passed away April, 15, 2018 at the age of 62.

https://missouri.funeral.com/2018/04/25/richard-boucher/?fbclid=IwAR1_c1yOsrBjLgB68XfcO-9pjykl5dmUSuPkS-h-g71_t9mxzRIW8_bapEI

Richard was co-owner along with Darrin Wiltshire of one of the first GA comic sites I ever found 'Good Guys and Gals of the Golden-age.' Richard's love and knowledge of GA comics was one of the inspirations for sites like DCM and CB+. He will be missed.

Here is a pic he shared from his FB page.

I did not know Richard Boucher, not even on-line. But I did enjoy the Good Guys/Gals site. He was one of the pioneers as Yoc said, that started the ball rolling towards DCM, and to an extent the Grand Comics Database that exist today.

Rest in Peace, Richard. And thanks.

Despite being a continent and ocean apart, Richard and I got to know each other quite well on-line. Richard's fascination with more obscure superheroes and Masked Mystery Men and Women, was a fascination we shared. His thirst for knowledge made me feel lazy and his research into the history of European, and especially Italian, MMM yielded lots of new information and comics.
Very sad news, and his passing leaves a big gap in our lives.

Here is a link to Richard and Darrin's 'Good Guys and Gals of the Goldenage' site with all 22 issues.
Shared by Darrin in Richard's memory.  The site was a labour of love for both of them.

Thanks Geo.  I just shared the same news on our Facebook page with this very detailed feature on Stan that The Comics Journal has shared on their site:

We knew it was coming but it’s still a shock. I was only lucky enough to meet Stan once, briefly, at a con.  I thanked him for having entertained me my whole life; he looked at me with that Stan Lee gleam in his eye and said “You know I did it all just for you, right?”

R.I.P. Stan Lee.

What surprised me, after the news broke, was the extent of the coverage. The success of the Marvel movies made him something of a non-fan/collector household name. Before then, based on the brief live action TV show and various cartoons, all we might have seen/heard would have been, "Stan Lee, creator of Spider-Man has died."

I related to Spider-Man more than most. I graduated high school the same month he did. My first visit to my college campus coincided with his.

The GCD front page mentioned that Canadian artist Jack Tremblay passed away as well. He drew stories for Bell Features comics during WWII and later became a painter.

For once, when I saw Obituaries had new messages, I didn't have to wonder who for.  Farewell, Stan.  We owe a good part of our childhood to you, and a lot of years beyond.
