Yes, he died of severe third-degree burns when his bedroom caught on fire - most likely from smoking a cigarette while asleep.

However, his passage is being overshadowed by the jubilee of three Japanese hostages that were released from captivity in Iraq.

It's a real shame.
I found most of his series very enjoyable.

It seems we're approching that time when most of the good, classic, directors and creators will be dying off. Although I agree that people should be happy at the release of the hostages, I hope people still take the time to acknowledge his passing.

This really is unfortunate. Yokoyama was a great and very influential manga-ka, he will surely be remembered.

Yokoyama...didnt he direct a animation movie? Well I am really sad that another great artist has passed away. Those kind of things always depress me but I guess his legacy will live on in his works. Best wishes for all of his family members.

Oh dear God no.

I didn't recognize the Romaji at first but as soon as my eyes set on the kanji--I'm here writing down my reaction.

To me, 横山光輝 will always be the Manga Master who completed the ambitious project of "三国誌 "--known as "The Romance of the Three Kingdoms" to the Western World. I remember seeing history come alive as I lost myself in his art. This Japanese re-telling of a time of a divided China was so well-done to the effect that some parents in Taiwan (mine included) encouraged their kids to this series of several dozen volumes--something unprecedented in that culture.

Sensei, you will be sorely missed. Tonight I weep for your passing, and wish that your work will be known to rest of the world.
