I felt I should say a few words about someone the Bay Area comic community has lost recently. Rory Root, owner of Comic Relief in Berkeley, has passed away recently. He was a big name in comics, and a good friend to many local artists and other creative types. On a personal note, it was his shop, Comic Relief, best darn comic shop in the San Francisco Bay Area, that got me interested in comics. He was quite a character, and I'm glad to have known him. He will be sorely missed.
