RIP Richard Thompson


Cartoonist Richard Thompson, the artist behind Poor Richard’s Almanack, Cul-de-Sac and many other wonderful comics, has passed away from the effects on his battle with Parkinson’s disease.

A more talented, kind and wonderful person could not be imagined.

Thompson won the Rueben Award for his work, and was diagnosed in 2009, and continued to work until he was forced to retire his strip in 2012. He continued to inspire those who knew him and his work however.

My condolences to his friends and family.

    I would argue he was the best cartoonist that ever lived (art, writing, person)

  2. Sonny Moon says

    Mr. Thompson was one of the great cartoonists, and by all accounts, a genuinely nice man. God bells him and his family.
