The sudden and tragic death of artist Seth Fisher, the result of a fall from rooftop in Japan, has resulted in a considerable outpouring of sympathy and sadness throughout all the disparate tribes of the comics community. Fisher's amazingly vibrant artwork seemed a perfect amalgam of manga and euro styles mixed with a considerable measure of the artist's own apparently unlimited imagination. He will be sorely missed.
From Chris Arrant at Newsrama:
" The following open e-mail has been sent to Fisher�s friends from his relative, April Fisher. It reads:
Dear Friends of Seth,
I've just hung up the phone from talking with Vicki (Seth's mother) in Japan. She is with family and friends at the wake. She was overwhelmed when I told her so many people are talking about him online, in blogs and forums. She thanks everyone for their thoughts and prayers. It seems Seth fell seven stories off the roof of a club in Osaka. The autopsy revealed massive internal bleeding and suggests that he died instantly.
The funeral in Japan is on Saturday. Condolences may be sent to Hisako (his wife) at:
Miyoshi Building 3C
There will be a service at Sacred Heart in Coronado (San Diego) when his mother returns from Japan (at least a week from now). The church will have the details (http://www.sacredheartcor.org/):
