We have some very sad news.
Antoine Collignon, of Street Monsters magazine and the Monsters Race series, died on Sunday after an accident during the Monsters Race at Le Vigeant. The race was red flagged immediately after the accident and the meeting closed.
Antoine was much admired by us all at the magazine. We published his amazing streetfighter cartoons in the days before he created and released the magazine Street Monsters, and then he set up the awesome Monsters Race series too. The global SF scene has lost a truly iconic figure and a driving force, and the nicest, most modest, unassuming guy you could ever wish to meet.
We offer our deepest condolences to Antoine's father and family, the Street Monsters crew, the Monsters Racers and to all Antoine's friends.
Please post comments about Antoine below. The thread will be printed out tomorrow night (Wednesday evening) and presented to Antoine's family at the funeral by MDM, Stu Garland and myself, who will be attending.
