The Washington Post Hosts A Pop Culture Celebration Of Seth Kushner By The People He Photographed

The Washington Post has run an article by Michael Cavna  in his Comic Riffs column featuring a selection of photographs, taken by the late Seth Kushner of comic book creators and creatives, alongside those featured talking about the circumstances of the shoot and of Seth's role. Jeff Newelt, we understand, was instrumental in gathering the contributions.

They include photos by Seth Kushner and words by Neil Gaiman, Becky Cloonan, Scott McCloud, Paul Pope, Douglas Rushkoff, Josh Neufeld, Simon Fraser, Gregory Benton, Jonathan Vankin, Kirstin Holly Smith, Leela Corman, Tom Hart, Brian Heater, Peter Kuper, Jeffrey Brown, Clark Gayton, Hannah Means-Shannon, Katelan Foisy, Jonny Wilson, Rick Parker, Chris Irving, Mike Dawson, Nathan Schreiber, Jonathan Baylis, Tim Hamilton and Jeff Newelt.

Here's just one from the top. Neil Gaiman said "I had a black eye and a swollen nose‎, delivered by an overly enthusiastic dog. We were in the bowels of  the Javits Center, the least pleasant and [least] photogenic place in the world. Somehow Seth still managed to make me look cool. I don't know how he pulled it off: miracle photography."
