Comic book artist Tim Sale passed away at the age of 66. There was an earlier post this week from Jim Lee, who announced Sale was in the hospital but without details.

Tim Sale's best known work is probably the Batman story-arc "The Long Halloween", in collaboration with Jeph Loeb. Elements from the story have been used in various other media over the years, including the recent The Batman movie or the 2-part animated adaptation of the comic.

Sale has worked on several other projects throughout his career, both at DC and Marvel, often still paired with Loeb, on characters like Superman, the Challengers of the Unknown, Daredevil, Spider-Man or Hulk.

I didn't want to assume the worst even though he was in the hospital...but this is a gut-punch :(.

RIP Tim Sale. Thank you for your legendary, iconic, art and for being a class act.

I had a bad feeling when I read about the hospital. I've been a fan of Tim's work since he drew the Thieves' World graphic novels.

This is a pretty sad time to be a WB and CN fan right now.
I don't entirely trust streaming platforms. Paying a monthly fee to watch some shows or listen to music that may one day disappear from the service for no reason, possibly to turn up on another service you have to subscribe to, all while they jack up the prices every few months or so.

It's just going to encourage people to watch stuff on pirate sites.
It's a good thing that Peanuts aren't owned by any major American company, and still has Schulz Family involvement. WildBrian and Sony Music Entertainment Japan have so far been good majority owners. (Hope this post doesn't turn sour in the future) Saying this after seeing the newest specials that have been done pretty well, whilst taking a risk of not just doing stories from the strips.
All of today's news about HBOMax and the whole purge remind me that CN used to be "the place to be" for me.

I'm old.
I'm just worrying about what shows CN will make under Zaslav lead
