Man of Letters Dies

I was very saddened to learn that Tom Frame died earlier this month.

Tom was a letterer (literally someone who writes the text in comics) for 2000AD and several other UK comics. For me, he was the letterer for Judge Dredd, and like a lot of early-2000AD stalwarts for a whole generation he will be better known for his droid alter-ego than for what he actually looked like.

So, as someone who helped form a large part of my childhood and adolescence (and arguably too much of my adulthood) Tom, thanks a lot.
