On Facebook tonight an artist that I greatly admire posted the first of a promised series of strips which opens with the recounting of a car accident in which the narrator, as a child, accidentally, in the most literal possible sense of the word, kills another child.

In jest but with serious intent I posted a comment suggesting that the story was the origin tale of one of the artist’s characters. The artist has subsequently deleted my comment and in interactions with other folks on FB confirmed that the story is in most respects true.

I trust this artist’s judgement and think he must have had a good reason for the deletion. I am at the moment so very sad for him; he has had a weight to carry since childhood and his art is in part an expression of it.
