Al Williamson - Requiescat in pace

Although it has not been officially confirmed, word is going around that Al Williamson passed away on Sunday at the age of 79. Perhaps best known for his work on "Flash Gordon" it would be unfortunate if he were dismissed as a "comic book artist." His style, particularly his pen and ink work, evoked the "Golden Age" of illustration and although there is little call for this type of work these days outside of comics, that is surely our loss.
No Catholic connection that I know of, but a great illustrator of the heroic whose work will be missed.
