R.I.P. Fantagraphics Co-publisher Kim Thompson

Fantagraphics Co-Publisher Kim Thompson, who gave a home to some of the best indie comics creators of all time (Peter Bagge, Daniel Clowes, The Hernandez Brothers) died recently.  I will admit I wasn't familiar with him until today, but I'm familiar with his accomplishments.  It's quite the achievement.

Thompson was an unbelievably important figure in comics history. What a loss.
"All I ask of you is one thing: please don't be cynical. I hate cynicism -- it's my least favorite quality and it doesn't lead anywhere.
Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen."
