Oh no

Guy Caballero. Count Floyd. Sammy Maudlin. The "Jackass!" guy from Happy Gilmore. Flaherty already lives rent free in my head forever.



To top it off, just yesterday I saw a billboard with Flaherty's fellow SCTV alum Eugene Levy and his son on it and was thinking, "Man, Eugene Levy really is looking damn good for his age."

Mark Bright, an artist who worked on a whole lot of comics back in the '80s and '90s, including Power Man and Iron Fist, and co-created Icon (with Dwayne McDuffie) and Quantum and Woody (with Christopher Priest).

He hadn't done a lot of comics work in the past couple of decades, but Q&W remains one of my all-time favorite series, and it's always a pleasant surprise to pick up an old comic and see Bright's name on it.

Another Milestone creator gone too soon, along with McDuffie, Robert Washington, and John Paul Leon.

He might have been missed if he'd chosen differently. But he won't be.

Funeral procession of broncos then. Instead of flowers, send gloves.

You know, IMO, it's really pretty impressive that we can think back on that time and still think "what a godawful media circus shitshow of shame" and have that still be valid in The Year of Our Internet, Twenty-Twenty-Four.
