Comic and cartoon tombstones
We're all about meaning & community here, but because of massive work commitments I wasn't able to make it to the San Diego Comic Con, where costumes are a standard way of expressing one's identity.
Though let's face it--posting pictures of cosplay is pretty much a convention cliche. Fortunately that's not the only way it's done in the community, so to mark the occasion here are several notable comic & cartoon tombstones!
Richard Morrissey, legendary comics historian & letter column denizen (thanks Michael!):
Mel Blanc, the voice of Bugs Bunny (among countless others!):
Alfred Harvey, founder of Harvey Comics, publisher of Casper the Friendly Ghost:
Mark Gruenwald, comic book writer, who was cremated & had his ashes mixed in the ink for the first edition of his collected series Squadron Supreme--a copy of which was a standard part of my law school classes on corporate life & personal identity!
