RIP Rodney Leighton

[Thanks to Dann Lennard for passing along the sad news.] Rod was one of zinedom's most likeable and readable characters. His appearance in any zine's letter column could ensure that zine would be a keeper. Even though I had personally lost touch with him, his letters in recent issues of Ken Bausert's quarterly 'The Ken Chronicles' were the highlight of those zines. He sure will be missed by many. His writings are collected online here for the benefit of humanity >>>

Oh this sucks!
He gave my a review of Dithering Doodles a rather Blaawwww verdict but this review was so funny that I printed it on the back cover of Dith Dood # 18 and have been meaning to send it to him to show how cool I was with his amusing review!

So sad!

Yeah it really sucks. His writing was so great. I'd love to read that review he wrote of DD! Could you include a copy of that issue in your next envelope to me please?

Rodney : THis Sucks!
Of course I will send you #18.
