    I believe it was Mike Raub who introduced me to Rory about 20 years ago, although I sort of knew him from my previous work at DC and First Comics. He was never afraid to share his opinions, but unlike some pontificators, his comments were both constructive and clever. On more than one occasion, we were up at 3 in the morning in some convention hotel lobby discussing the minutiae of the medium. I always walked away exhausted — but with a better understanding of the comics landscape.When I heard about his death yesterday, I just sat there and stared at the computer. I still have a hard time believing it. Make no mistake about it: Rory Root made comics better.
