Bad Idea have just put up a digital comic book – albeit one that was still a work in progress – for free in memory of the passing of Ryan Bodenheim, along with the accompanying statement of condolence:
“Ryan Bodenheim, an exceptional storyteller, an exquisite illustrator, a colleague, a part of our family, and a friend, passed away far too young this past December. Ryan had been working with us on a book that we are so excited and proud to share. We are breaking a cardinal Bad Idea rule today and releasing the comic digitally. It’s a work in progress, but we wanted to share it in celebration of Ryan and his incredible talent. We’ll also be sharing some memories of Ryan on social media today and we hope you will join us in celebrating his life and work by posting some of your favorite Ryan Bodenheim books, art, panels, commissions, covers, etc.
We miss our friend dearly.”
The comic, Spark #1 by Ryan Bodenheim, Robert Venditti. Ulises Arreola and Dave Sharpe can be read here now.
“The comic book industry will never die because we love what we do. We won’t stop drawing, we won’t stop telling stories, we won’t stop reading them. We’ve been doing it since the caves.” – Ryan Bodenheim
