Farewell, Ray Bradbury

"This is The Man. He is the true son of Hal Foster." - Ray Bradbury, about me. Foster was the creator of PRINCE VALIANT, and from childhood on, Ray's favorite writer/illustrator. No father could have spoken any prouder words to a son, and it meant the world to me to receive them. They mean even more now. And they'll mean even more tomorrow. God protect your rocket, Ray, on this new magnificent flight. I am heartbroken with joy to have known you as I did, and I will love you forever.

This year I've "lost" two of the men who influenced me most as a teenager. Ray Bradbury and Moebius.

You were really blessed to have a mentor like him. I feel your pain.
