Rory Root health update

Word has been spreading like wildfire this afternoon, that Rory Root, owner of Comic Relief in Berkeley, is in a coma following complications from hernia surgery. ComicsPRO has more.

Difficult news today— Rory Root, owner of Berkeley CA’s (and world-famous) COMIC RELIEF, is in a coma in an Oakland CA hospital.

Shown in the center of this 2007 photo with retailing friends Jim Hanley, Mike Cresser, Derrick Taylor and Ralph Mathieu, Rory has had a number of health issues in recent years. His latest seems to stem from a ruptured hernia that requires extensive surgery this past weekend.

You would have to search long and hard to find anyone in the business side of comics as respected and loved as Rory. He is always there with advice, kind words and wisdom. You can read a sampling of his most recent words in this retailer roundtable with Elizabeth Genco.

I called up Comic Relief in Berkeley and spoke to a store employee who had no further updates than what is known. Rory is at Kaiser in Oakland, for those who have been asking, and is in the ICU. His family asks that you keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

I send my best to Rory and his family.
