When bad things happen to good artists

Both Jim Mooney and Dave Stevens have died recently. I enjoyed the artwork of both men enormously and am saddened at the thought that neither will ever produce any more original work. Jim Mooney is especially meaningful to me for his work on Supergirl and Man-Thing (now there's an odd team), while Dave Steven will always be Mr. Rocketeer to me... although he did some wonderful covers for Mark Evanier and Dan Spiegel's late, great, and much missed CROSSFIRE title, as well.

I have little more to say than this, although I will note I learned of both sad events through Mark Evanier's blog, which is always worth reading.
