RIP Raoul Duke

Dr. Hunter S. Thompson killed himself Sunday at his home in Aspen. I've been a fan of Hunter Thompson ever since I read Hell's Angels in college and Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas is on my short list of all-time favorite novels. Dr. Thompson and his writings were more than a little inspiration for my political strip The Daily Grind, and a huge inspiration for Galapagopolis, the Daily Grind graphic novel I've scripted.

Why do the authors I really admire always end up committing suicide?
