It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I must post this news: earlier tonight I learned Larry DiTillio has passed away.
I don’t have the words to describe how I feel. Mr. DiTillio worked on a lot of things that influenced me as a child. But by far the most influential came during my adult years.
That was Beast Wars.
I was in my twenties when the Beast era began but I wasn’t a fan. I was under the influence of my then significant other, who claimed that those weren’t “real Transformers”.
Then, we broke up and I started to watch. That show helped me get through some of my darkest times.
I can’t say it in person so I’ll say it here: thank you, Mr. DiTillio. For everything.
