Indeed!

Wish he could have hosted a few more Superheroine Showdowns, made a few more episodes of Sisterhood of Superheroines, maybe even published a comic book of the Sisterhood with heroines inspired by the likes of Stacy Burke and Diana Knight.

But it is what it is. Rosa Perez, aka Poderosa the Puerto Rican superwoman, is our salute to George. Viva!

And for those who enjoy an all-superheroine comic series, try the trade paperbacks of 'Sirens', the series he did ten years ago for Boom Studios.

Yes. A bunch of other Youtubers did eulogies, including Ya Boi Zack, who had an in-person meeting with Comicstorian at New York Comicon in 2017.
Very sad to hear. Zack said that Ben (along with his fellow Youtubers Comics Explained and Comic Drake) was almost single-handedly instrumental in introducing superhero comics to the under-30 crowd which watches Youtube diligently, using a "story time" method of reading out comic book stories and explaining the characters. Unfortunately, I don't think this really helped the sales of new Western comic books in the past few years, as the vast majority of those people picked up manga instead. But it was a valiant effort that should be highly admired.
