My very favorite working comic strip artist, Richard Thompson, creator of the absolutely wonderful Cul De Sac, revealed today that he has Parkinson's disease.
I've met Richard, and he is a sweet guy. He's also going to be a special guest this year at Comic Con, which I won't be attending. I'm currently kicking myself because I'm missing so many, many people I want to see, but I would have especially loved to attend Richard's spotlight panel (Thursday at 4 PM). You should go, if you're around. I'm sure his sly wit and daft sense of humor will make for a great time.
