R.I.P. Kim Thompson, 1956-2013


I think it’s safe to say that The Beguiling might not exist without many of the comics that Kim Thompson had a hand in over the past 25 years. All of us here are saddened by his passing.

Many folks have done wonderful write-ups of just why he was so important to this medium, and Tom Spurgeon has been collecting them here. We encourage you to read them, to see the lives he touched and the greatness he brought to the medium.

Our condolences to our friends at Fantagraphics, to Kim Thompson’s friends, and his family.

– Peter Birkemoe and the Staff of The Beguiling
