News outlets report that Tom Moore, an influential comics artist known for his work in Archie, has passed in El Paso, Texas.
Mr. Moore, who worked on Archie comics for three decades, was among the guests an "El Paso in the Comics" event I organized while I worked at UTEP. I learned about his presence in the area through an anonymous tip.
I remember him as collegial, humble, and eager to speak to any of the other comics creators and event attendees.
While my time with him was brief, he left an impression, and I join his family and the comics community in mourning his loss. Mr. Moore was 86.
