Topic: Comic Book Artists
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #4053 - Yesterday late afternoon I read of the passing of famous comic book artist Murphy Anderson...
He was well known to comic book fans, as he was in the comic book industry for many years...
I had met him at the San Diego Comic Con International before, but it was at the ignaural San Diego Comic Fest back on October 19th of 2012 that I got to know him and his wife Helen a little bit better.
I saw them at the Comic Fest location and they needed a little help in finding their bearings on the convention. I took them to Cafe Frankenstein, where they were to meet David Siegel, who had arranged for them to attend the Comic Fest.
Well, after guiding them to the Cafe, I sat down with them and David, and we all had a great visit!
I saw them a few more times during the convention, and attended the special program that Gary Carter interviewed Murphy at.
All in all, it was a great time seeing Murphy and Helen on a more intimate visitation, than I had before at the larger convention.
So I was a little sad to hear of his passing yesterday and thought I would share these photos with you all today...
My condolences to Murphy's family & friends.
