We are very sorry to share the news that comics artist Tim Sale has passed away. Perhaps best known for his work on “The Long Halloween,” Sale’s work was credited as a major source of inspiration for Matt Reeves‘ “The Batman.”
Fellow artist and longtime friend Richard Starkings first posted the news. Sale’s official social media accounts shortly thereafter confirmed it. Outpourings of love and shared memories from the comic creator community followed.
Our thoughts go out to Sale’s family, friends, and legions of fans at this time. He was 66.
