Yesterday while picking up my new books, Popa text me that Josh Medors had passed away. I knew of Josh's long battle with cancer and how hard it had been. I also knew he recently had been back in the hospital due to additional problems, however it still struck me pretty hard.
Being from the same general area, we had the chance to see Josh at quite a few shows. Popa and Andy picked up sketches from Josh the next time we saw him and I had a chance to buy a few more of his GI Joe pages. Josh and his wife Charlotte were always great to talk with at shows and his name on a guest list was a reason to be more excited for a convention. Josh was just as much a fan as he was creator. I last got to see Josh at the 2012 Pittsburgh Comic Con. He put on a friendly face and chatted as much as he could but it was clear he wasn't feeling his best. I didn't get to talk with him as much as in the past but I will be always be glad for the visits we did have.
