Cohen. Rex died in 2015, after a long illness. He worked on his writing and his art until the very end. He often wrote about and depicted an out-of-body, near-death experience when he was a teenager suffering form spinal meningitis. At the end, having faced death before, he was determined to "not go gentle into that dark night."
