Brother of Japanese Illustrator Who Died at Comiket Posts Heartwarming Thank You

Kuro Hekiten, a Japanese doujinshi illustrator and writer, passed away shortly after being rushed to the hospital when he collapsed at Comiket late last December.

The artist attended the multi-day event in hopes to sell his stuff just like other artists who set up desks and booths at Tokyo Big Sight’s west hall. Before the doors were open, Hekiten snapped a photo of the desks and tables laid out in an empty hall, describing the picture as “the calm before the storm,” according to SoraNews24.
