    Rest in peace, Stan. You brought joy to a lot of people, including me. I was reading some Archie Stan Goldberg reprint stories this morning before I heard of your passing.

    Stan was a workhorse at Archie for many decades, contributing to the definitive style for the characters. I was delighted when he drew me in a comic George Gladir wrote about Archie and the Gang attending Comic-Con back in the 1980s. He was a real sweetheart and will be much missed. My condolences to his family.
