Kim Thompson, 56

Fantagraphics Books co-publisher Kim Thompson passed away this morning at age 56 after a four-month bout with lung cancer. Kim served as editor and point-person on our three Flora anthologies, and we missed working with him on our soon-to-be-published book #4. I'll post a detailed personal perspective on Kim tomorrow—which means I'll devote 50 times as many words explaining what a great guy he was to work with and how much we'll miss him.

Our deepest condolences to the Thompson family and to the Fantagraphics staff.
