Speculation here about the health of comic artist Frank Miller.

Frank Miller looking a very rough 59 at the Batman vs. Superman premier. Almost certainly has some form of cancer.

 

 

For reference, this is him from 3 years ago:

Given the mainstream success of his work (Sin City, 300, Dark Knight Returns, ect.) he's certain to get a UK obit.

Cartoonist for Mad Magazine, John Caldwell, has died.

My older brother (who growing up had a Mad Magazine collection) was upset about the news.

Michael C Gross, creator of the Ghostbusters logo amongst over things has given an interview to the Daily Telegraph.  He is on my DDP team as he has terminal cancer, however the article doesn't touch on this at all and tells us that he is now working in California now as a nature photographer. 

Very interesting. Both articles even descirbe him as gravelly voiced and "gruff". Same author?

 

 

Gross busted.

 

 

Qualifying DDP Obit for the two teams who had him. http://www.dailymail...go-dies-70.html

Gross busted.

He was planned to be on my 2016 DDP cancer-themed team. But that's okay, I'm starting to think I should do just a regular team and that's it.
