Comics writer and interviewer Tim O’Shea died over the  weekend. He’d been battling brain cancer for a while, a struggle a lot of us followed on social media. He was only 49. There are lots of remembrances on his Facebook page  – his Talking Comics with Tim series interviewed just about everyone who mattered, and these were often the most concise and revealing interviews of their kind.

Tim was part of the starting line-up of The Great Curve, a blog started by Alex Segura that went on to become Blog@Newsarama and then Robot 6. Ah the great days of comics blogging! Tim was one of the foundational members of that group, with solid work and insights. More than that, he was a guy with a huge heart, just one of the nicest, sweetest people.

JK Parkin has a remembrance here and I’m sure there’s more to come. Tim touched many people, myself included, and he won’t be forgotten. His work at CBR is at this link, his personal work here.
