Story Kazuhiko Katō, better known by his pseudonym "Monkey Punch", has passed away.  He was most famous for creating the manga Lupin III. I've never seen any of it, but I have seen references to it in many manga and anime that I have seen. One of the most influential figures in Japanese comics.

I was just today searching about for some Lupin III books from Tokyopop (Unfortunately, they're OOP and have high prices) and recalled Monkey Punch passing away earlier this year.  R.I.P.

Hoping Lupin III gets a re-release someday.
