Today I found out from Newsarama that legendary Batman artist Jim Aparo passed away. I am greatly saddened by this news, and wish nothing but my deepest sympathy to his loved ones and friends.
His work has always touched me, with it's depth and imagination. To me, he has always seemed timeless and I always found it a treat to buy a book with his art in it. I grew up with Mr. Aparo's work, and to find out he has died, is like a blow to the gut. I never met him, but I always admired him.

Godspeed, Mr. Aparo. Your and family are in my thoughts and prayers.
