  • Adams belongs in the very highest rank of comics artists, up there with a handful of people like Jack Kirby and Carmine Infantino. I saw an interview where Infantino was laughing about the fact that DC originally put Adams on the Jerry Lewis comic!

    Nobody had ever seen art like his. R.I.P.
    The pandemic should have ended in the United States in March. You know why it didn't, don't you? Think about that every time you put on a mask.

              The footwear industry has lost a giant, as sneaker brands have confirmed to Complex the passing of legendary designer and sportswear exec Peter Moore.

              “We are deeply saddened by the loss of Peter Moore, an iconic designer, whose legacy will forever be connected to Jordan Brand, and the sneaker culture he helped to create,” said Jordan Brand Vice President Howard “H” White. “We extend our deepest sympathies to the Moore family during this time.”

              Moore, who was a creative director at Nike and Adidas, has a portfolio that includes era-defining work like the iconic Air Jordan 1. Released in 1985, the Jordan 1 is a shoe largely responsible for shaping sneaker culture as we know it today. Moore’s resume also includes the Nike Dunk, another ‘85 release that has experienced a massive resurgence on the market in recent years.

              After adding Nike as a client of his design agency in 1977, Moore officially joined the company as its first brand creative director in 1983. In addition to designing shoes, Moore played a prominent role in creating campaigns and designing logos, including the Jumpman silhouette adorning Michael Jordan’s sneakers.

                        • I was lucky enough to meet Neal Adam's years ago and had a wonderful lengthy interaction with him. They always say never meet your heroes and there's a lot of truth to that, but that was certainly not the case when I met Adam's. He was charming, kind, talkative and a general chatty Cathy which made it fun. If you put up a list of greats, theres no conversation to be had where Neal Adam's isn't on that list. An enormous loss for the industry.

                                Mike Hagerty, a veteran character actor known for his comedic, nondescript everyman roles in shows like “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Seinfeld,” “Friends” and as a series regular in HBO’s “Somebody Somewhere,” has died. He was 67.

                                Hagerty’s death was announced by one of his “Somebody Somewhere” co-stars Bridgett Everett on behalf of his family on Friday. No cause of death was provided. Reps for Hagerty did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

                                “I loved Mike the instant i met him. He was so special. Warm, funny, never met a stranger. We are devastated he has passed. Mike was adored by the entire cast and crew of ‘Somebody Somewhere.’ Our thoughts are with his wife and family,” Everett wrote.

                                Born in Chicago and an alum of the Second City comedy troupe, Mike Hagerty was known for his thick Chicagoan accent and mustache and blue-collar charm that helped him deliver a memorable presence in countless classic comedies, sitcoms and more, often thought of as “that guy” from shows like “Friends” or in isolated appearances on dozens of other shows.
