UPDATE: Michael Davis victim of prank death hoax
UPDATE: Michael was hacked badly, with messages sent out to family and friends. He’s alive and well.
We are incredibly sad to report that Michael Davis, longtime columnist for ComicMix, committed suicide one day before his birthday. We can list all his accomplishments in the comics field and go through his history and impact in the field, from his mentoring of numerous up and comers in the industry to his co-founding of Milestone Media and Motown Animation & Filmworks AND The Guardian Line AND The Black Panel at San Diego Comic-Con AND… but the best way to hope to understand and know Michael is through his words and his works. There will be more to say later about him, but right now we’re too shocked to be coherent. Please, if you or someone you care about are considering self-harm or suicide, contact the Suicide Prevention Hotline. We’re sorry we couldn’t have helped you more, Michael. Rest easy.
