Cult cartoonist Spain Rodriguez dies

From WENN.com

The underground graphic novelist passed away at his home in San Francisco, California on Wednesday (28Nov12) following a lengthy battle with cancer.

After landing a job at New York's East Village Other newspaper, he created his own superhero, Trashman, in the late 1960s, which garnered a cult following. The series ran until 1985.

Longtime friend and fellow cartoonist Ron Turner told his fans of Rodriguez's death, saying, ""It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing this morning of Spain Rodriguez. He passed at home with his daughter and wife at his bedside... He had been fighting cancer for a long time. He was a wonderful father, husband, and friend. His art challenged, changed and enlightened and entertained us for over five decades.""
