Re: Pop Culture Obituaries

Another loss for fans of comics, sci-fi, fantasy, horror, etc.:  David Warner, known for his appearances in such projects as The Omen, Doctor Who, Titanic, Babylon 5, Star Trek (film and tv), and as the voice of Ra's Al Ghul on Batman: The Animated Series, died July 24 at 80.

Re: Pop Culture Obituaries

RIP Nichelle Nichols, actress best known for playing Lt. Uhura on the original Star Trek (TOS) in the 1960s, the early 1970's' Filmation cartoon based on the show (TAS), and in six movies from 1979-1992.  Her presence on the show in the 60s as an African-American actress in a regular role on an American TV show was trailblazing at the (very turbulent) time, and she was part of the first interracial kiss on American TV.

Pat Carroll (Hawkman's mother on Legends of the Superheroes; Hippolyta on late 1980s Superman cartoon series)

RIP Anne Heche. Apparently her body is technically still alive but due to the severity of her brain injury resulting from a car accident she has been declared dead in the legal sense.

I've debated whether or not to count him because he was more of a political figure than a pop culture figure, but RIP Mikhail Gorbachev. He did play himself in a Pizza Hut commercial and was certainly referenced in pop culture, perhaps unfairly in the Destroyer novel series.

Re: Pop Culture Obituaries

Another borderline case that I'm counting: Elizabeth II. While not directly involved in works of fiction, she was depicted in several movies, novels, comics, etc, so indrectly left a pretty big mark in popular culture.

The Kopsa link took me to a 12-year-old obituary for Tony Curtis.

The RIP part for Bass accidentally got attached to the link for Kopsa. I fixed the link so it should work now.
