Of all the comics reporters, Tom Spurgeon was the best comics reporter
I never met Tom Spurgeon, but I followed his coverage of the crazy comics industry ever since I saw his name in the Comics Journal, and it was always good because there was always so much warmth and humour there, even when he was ripping something to shreds.
Sometimes he would say something nice about the bullshit I put up here, and it was a thrill every time. He filled a gap in comics journalism which is going to be impossible to replace, because I don't think I'll ever trust anybody's opinion as much has I trusted Tom's.
