A few days ago Dylan Williams passed away. He was a champion for cartoonists everywhere, from half-forgotten Golden Age illustrators, to teenagers self-publishing their first mini-comic. Through first Puppy Toss, and then through his Sparkplug Comic Books he published and distributed the work of many, many emerging cartoonists. He was an iconoclastic artist who always made work to please himself instead of just doing what was popular. He was a man of great conviction. And for several years he was the Laverne to my Shirley.

Please consider ordering books from Sparkplug or purchasing work from the Dylan Williams benefit auctions to help Dylan's wife Emily with his medical costs. We are also planning a Bay Area memorial in the upcoming weeks.

I have posted a few of my photos of Dylan at my Flickr site, and I would love to see more from people who knew him in the 1990's.

Floating World Comics Benefit for Dylan Williams

Re-post from Floating World Comics: Dylan Williams would never ask any of his friends to do a benefit like this. Not his style. Sorry Dylan, I know you said no gifts, but your friends love you too much and you’re just going to have to accept this present.

A few days ago Tom Spurgeon and others sent out a call for people to support Dylan by buying Sparkplug Comic Books. When I heard how serious the situation was I felt shock and sadness. Felt a little helpless, then I think yesterday we all got the same idea at the same time. Gotta do something to help our friend. Jim Rugg emailed me last night about putting together an art fundraiser show which I’ll start organizing this weekend and I’ll have more info on Monday.

In the meantime we’re going to have a benefit sale at Floating World next Monday and Tuesday, August 29th – 30th.

We’re going to donate 100% of our proceeds from those two days to Dylan’s medical care. We’ll have a special section of Sparkplug books for you to check out but the sale includes everything you buy on Monday and Tuesday.
