Tom Spurgeon 1968-2019

I didn’t know Tom Spurgeon, a longtime critic and lover of comics who passed
away last week at just 50. We met but once at a convention. I know his work, though, and I know a lot of other people in the comics world who did know him, admire him, care for him.

Spurgeon was editor of Fantagraphics’ The Comics Journal for several years before launching his website The Comics Reporter.
