I just heard news that the great, great Nick Post passed away Friday:
There was no bigger supporter of the Minneapolis cartooning community than Nick. If you’ve ever had a free table at Fallcon or Springcon, you can thank Nick. If you’ve ever had the Source buy ten of your comics sight unseen, you can thank Nick. Many of the Cartoonist Conspiracy’s projects would not have been possible without his support… for one example, the Midwest Comic Book Association and The Source funded the vast majority of the BIG FUNNY project under Nick’s influence. Nick was incredibly generous and incredibly genuine. He was a retailer, but he never stopped being a comic fan. Boy, will he ever be missed.
Postiglione, Dominic J. “Nick Post” Age 52, of St. Paul. Passed away too soon on Aug-ust 8, 2014. Survived by beloved son, Adam; parents, Bill and Judy “Eunice”; siblings, Gaby, Tony and Greg; many nieces, nephews, co-workers and minions. Nick was a larger than life Cretin grad, was active in the comic book world and a State Fair icon. Memorial service 11 AM Tuesday, August 12 at CORNERSTONE BIBLE CHURCH, 735 East 10th St., Hastings. Visitation at the church from 10-11 AM Tuesday. Nick, you are our real life Superman
