    That’s awful. His poor wife, in London without him. Truly terrible.

    I’ve just been reading BORDERLINE, by Trillo and Risso, which I got on a whim, and have been really enjoying it. He was an interesting, solid writer.

    Rest in peace, Mr. Trillo.

    This is so sad to hear. His work with Bernet and Risso was amazing. Here’s to hoping such a loss will bring him a greater audience in the English speaking world.

    You will be sorely missed, good sir.
