Word is hitting all the blogs and comics newssites about the passing of Dick Giordano. While I never met the man, I do feel as if I knew him, at least by reputation.
Back in the days when I was transcribing interviews for Twomorrows' magazines, any time Dick's name came up, there was nothing but compliments for him. I don't recall any story told about him -- even the ones that didn't make print -- that put him in a bad light.
One of the few books about specific comics people I still have in my collection is Michael Eury's biography about Dick, and I think I may have to re-read it again very soon.
Goodbye, Dick... rest in peace.
