I have a bunch of Darwyn stories, but they all add up to what I said above…he was a funny, generous, charming guy. I wish the last time I saw him (in Montreal outside our hotel at a comic convention) he hadn’t been smoking a cigarette, but I’m stuck with that last visual memory no matter what I do. Fuck cancer.
(The family has set up a page with the Canadian Cancer Society to accept donations in Darwyn’s honour. Link HERE.)
Ty the Guy OUT.
A couple of images of Slam Bradley by Darwyn.
Darywn showed up in the Bun Toon every now and then. He was too important to our industry, doing too much interesting work for me not to comment on him now and then. Here’s one from a few years ago, when he did a magnificent job on his issues of Before Watchmen.
Amazingly enough, the Alan Moore Hover-Guilt quieted down when I read Darwyn’s series. It helped that I knew Darwyn, and don’t know Alan. It also helped that Darwyn did a fantastic job on the book, as he did every time he did anything.
I still haven’t read his last book, The Twilight Children, and wonder when I’ll be able to enjoy it properly. I flipped through it today, and it’s beautiful. Of course.
