Rory Root R.I.P

I just have recieved sad news that Berkeley CA comic book store owner Rory Root of Comic Relief has passed away. Rory gave me great advice and encouragement on my first comics. A true fan and friend of all comic books.

from www.fantagraphics.com:

…On Saturday, Rory slipped into a coma after emergency surgery and never woke up. He passed away this afternoon. I don’t want to write this now but know I should because I will miss Rory and he needs to be remembered as the kind soul and legend in his field that he was. …
