On behalf of Comicoz and all comic book Fans, I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Rob Feldman and his extended family on the very recent loss of Rob's Father. It was only last February that Rob had to farewell his Mother. (Said Rob: "My dear Dad had a great innings - 93 years - and he's off to join Mum for some serious partying".) Rob is well aware that many comic book Fans are looking forward to reading his book "Cartoons, Comics and Cows In Cars", so he has passed the book's files on to me (Nat Karmichael) to assist in getting them completed. I trust that all Ned Kelly Pledgers and all Rob Feldman Fans will join me in sending our thoughts and condolences to Rob during this time of his and his family's personal sadness.
