Steve Moore passes away

 Moore passed away the 16 of March, as Strange Attractor noted in their respectful obituary: "Steve was a warm, wise and gentle man, with a surreal sense of humour and an astoundingly deep knowledge that covered history, the I Ching, forteana, magic, oriental mysticism, martial arts cinema, science fiction, underground comics and worlds more."

"Steve was amongst the earliest members of the Gang of Fort, who launched Fortean Times magazine in the early 1970s, and later edited its scholarly journal Fortean Studies. He was also the author of a great many influential comics and short stories for publications including 2000AD, Warrior, Dr Who magazine [sic] and, most recently, the Hercules series for Radical Publishing. At the time of his death he was working on a number of new projects, including his ongoing, privately published Tales of Telguuth and The Bumper Book of Magic, with his lifelong friend Alan Moore."

Bleeding Cool rounded up some Twitter coverage and Forbidden Planet regretted his early death. Jonathan Morris wrote a thoughtful piece about the creator of Abslom Daak and Kroton.
