CAP­TAIN HAR­LOCK Writer Dead at 55

Starburst Magazine - - Anime-nation -

2015 has al­ready seen the deaths of RWBY cre­ator Monty Oum and vet­eran voice ac­tor Kazuya Tatek­abe, and we’re sad to report that Cap­tain Har­lock scribe Robert W. Gib­son passed away in May, aged only 55. The Ger­man born au­thor penned 17 is­sues of Cap­tain Har­lock, based on Leiji Mat­sumoto’s manga and an­ime fran­chise, as well as The Pirate Queen Emer­al­das and var­i­ous Robotech ti­tles. He was also a prom­i­nent mem­ber of the Car­toon/Fan­tasy Or­gan­i­sa­tion San An­to­nio club, who were hugely in­flu­en­tial in bring­ing an­ime and manga to an Amer­i­can au­di­ence in the eight­ies.
