:cry:I don't know if DW folks know Don Pankievicz, a professional comic book writer and novelist, but he passed away recently. He lost to COVID-19. I've known Don when he answered to my search for a writer/co-creator for one of my comic projects that I'm converting to prose. He's a great guy and he loved his family. I found out that he's well loved in the comics community as he's one of the founder of Inked Forge Studios. Don has done a great job taking on the horror project I gave him and finished off the first volume and I've praised his excellent work. We're in the middle of expanding the manuscript as I've asked him to add a short prologue. I was trying to meet a certain wordcount so to speak. I've also lined up another horror project for him to take on after this one, an action packed Pirate story which he really liked a lot and was itching to get started on it.

I've lost a very good writer-partner, a co-creator and a very good friend. I will sure miss him. Thanks for knowing you and for the great work on our project.

My deepest condolences to his wife and kids. R.I.P. Don.

We corresponded years ago about possibly working on something together and even later I did a cover for a comic he wrote, tho that time I wasn't dealing with Don directly. Sorry to hear of his passing, RIP.

Thanks Danny. This just tells us that we are vulnerable to this virus. Pretty serious stuff that we cannot ignore. Be safe brother.

I was pretty close with him. I meet him by doing stories for his Twisted X-Mas anthologies. He was a really great guy. I still think I should tell Don that and then realize he isn't with us anymore. RIP

Yes, he was a really cool guy and it's really sad to know that's he's not here anymore. I've planned next year to debut the project we're doing, the first volume he wrote and I'll do a crowdfunding. I don't know where yet, either KS or IGG. If it's successful and we got the funding, his share of the revenue will go to his family. I promised that.
