Obituary: Stefan Neuhaus (1947-2022)

Dear friends and acquaintances of comics and the comics association!

We are very sad to inform you that on Tuesday our long-time association chairman Stefan Neuhaus succumbed to his serious illness at the age of 74. His wife and daughter were with him. We mourn the loss of a very dedicated and competent colleague and friend. As a passionate comics reader, collector and above all advocate, he worked for many years in Berlin, throughout Germany and also internationally for the recognition and promotion of the medium. The gap he leaves behind is both an obligation and an incentive for us as an association to continue the work he accompanied in his spirit.

A farewell service/burial will take place in Berlin at the 19th of August 13 Uhr at Wilmersdorfer Friedhof, 10714 Berlin.

In deep mourning and on behalf of the association, the colleagues of the Board of Directors
Katharina Sofie Naujoks and Axel Halling

PS: Attached is a photo of Stefan in action at the Comic Festival in Łódź (Poland) 2018!
