Drew Hayes, R.I.P.

I just got this e-mail sent out by Robb Horan of Sirius Comics, the company that's been publishing POISON ELVES.

Bad news.

Many of you have written to us asking about the well-being of Drew Hayes.


I am saddened to report that Drew Hayes, the maverick creator of POISON ELVES, has died in his hometown of Bellingham, Washington. Drew had a heart attack while suffering from pneumonia. He is survived by his daughter, Mary and his mother, Sharon.

Drew had been hospitalized more than once over the last several years, but his return to good health had seemed imminent, so the suddenness of his passing was an unexpected shock to myself and others that knew him. Drew was 37 years old.


I last spoke to Drew in January, when he was arranging to submit his original cover for POISON ELVES Volume 11. Drew remained sincerely comitted to creating his best work ever in the years ahead. He had proposed re-launching the series with issue #80 and returning to a quarterly schedule in 2007. He was clear that that was his goal and his intention.

He was a loyal and genuine friend to me, my family and the family of creators at Sirius Entertainment. He is sorely missed.


If you would like to share your thoughts with Drew's family, please send your e-mails to info@CosmicTherapy.com

This is the most fucked up thing since Joey Ramone or Dimebag Darrell died. I'm sitting here at work typing this when I should be doing something else, and I'm really upest by this because this guy was my hero. This guy was telling the baddest story on the planet and he was this awesome motherfucker that I felt like I knew like a best friend.

Now he's gone.

I don't know what else to say.
