    Sorry to hear about Rick. I only knew him a little but we had a few laughs together at trade shows back in the day. I liked him.

    Thank you to everybody who responded, both here and on Facebook. It means a lot to me and to his friends. First and formost of his many accomplishments: Rick Obadiah was a mensch.

    First Comics was the greatest indie publisher of the 80s. Their legacy is written in stone. AMERICAN FLAGG, GRIMJACK, LONE WOLF & CUB, NEXUS, and on and on. These are some of the greatest ongoing series we’ve ever seen. Rest in peace, Rick, and thank you for your part in birthing a company that played a massive part in why so many of us fell in love with this medium.
