Re: Pop Culture Obituaries

RIP Ian Lavender. Though probably not well known outside the UK, Ian was a well known actor in Britain, best remembered for as Private Pike in Dad's Army, a sitcom set in WWII that ran from 1969 through 1978. He was the last surviving main cast member of the show.

Re: Pop Culture Obituaries

RIP comic book artist José Delbo (Wonder Woman, Transformers). During the time in the 1970s when the Wonder Woman comic was set in Earth-2 World War II to tie into the TV show a bit, he was the artist.

RIP musician/Actor Mojo Nixon (Preacher Man Bob in Buttcrack)

Also, really late, but I just found out that another prominent musician, Rolf Harris (Snow White Bloomers, Jake the Peg) passed away last May. Given what he was convicted on, I'll leave out the RIP bit.

RIP Tommy Karlsen Sandum (Arne in Lillyhammer). Multiple sites say the cause of death is unknown, but a smaller number even saying the above call it a suicide.

RIP Trina Robbins. I'm pretty sure everyone on these boards know about her comics and feminist take comic book history books. This one is particularly sad because she signed some things for me at a comic shop  and seemed really nice.

Re: Pop Culture Obituaries

RIP documentarian Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me, 30 Days). Given his later admission of alcoholism, I suspect that played a role in how his McDonald's experiment impacted his health. However, he did make fast food restaurants more transparent as to what goes into their food, and his show 30 Days encouraged people to put themselves in others' shoes, a lesson that's much needed these days.
