Rachel Pollack Has Passed

Rachel Pollack did a superb run on, "Doom Patrol," among other comics, was one of the first openly Transgender creators in comics, wrote some very neat fiction and non-books, knew a ton about Tarot cards, and was all-around a neat person. Sadly, she passed at the age of 77 after having been diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in July 2022. She moved to hospice care this past March and now has left this realm but leaves behind a fantastic body of work and fond memories I've seen loved ones sharing. 

She is survived by her wife, Judith Zoe Mateen who wrote when discussing Pollack's passing, "I know that Rachel will continue to be a Light in this world and in the next. She will continue to inspire so many of our beloved Tarot community, the Science Fiction and Fantasy community, the Comics community, and the Transgender community for whom she shared so much respect and care." She will be missed.
