Arnold Wagner

Arnold Wagner has passed away. He’d been battling cancer for quite some time, and it had recently returned. His daughter announced the news late Friday night.

I never knew Arnold in person, but I consider myself very fortunate to have interacted with him online over the past several months.

I met him at the toontalk forums, where he came across as this wise and gentle grandfatherly figure, always willing to share advice and insight. His blog, Arnold’s Cartoonology, is a treasure of cartoon history. The formatting has gone a bit wacky in recent months, but if you can handle it, it’s definitely worth reading.

It was a treat to get to know him, even if it was only in the limited way that I did.

Thanks, Arnold.
