Daniel Robert Epstein -- By now you've probably heard of the death of Daniel Robert Epstein, one of the comics internet's most valuable journalists. More often than not over the past few years, if someone somewhere linked to an interview with a cartoonist I was interested in, it turned out Epstein conducted the piece, and his work was uniformly excellent. Eric Reynolds of Fantagraphics has compiled a list of Daniel Robert Epstein's interviews with Fantagraphics cartoonists. (Thanks to Dirk Deppey for spotting this).

Newsarama's Matt Brady also remembers Epstein, who was a frequent contributer to Newsarama.

Finally, here's one of Epstein's last pieces of comics journalism, an interview with Joe Matt upon the release of his new collection Spent, published by Drawn and Quarterly. I'm going to go read this piece now. I'm grateful for all the great reading Epstein provided all of us with over the past few years. His was one of the few names I automatically associated with excellence every time I heard it, and I hoped we'd see much, much more from him.

Update: Here's an interview Epstein conducted with perennial Galaxy fave Jason Marcy.
