Everyone is sharing this wonderful New Yorker tribute to Alan Rickman

Oh, just crying again.

THE TRIBUTES TO Alan Rickman have been pouring in since the news of his death was announced yesterday.

The New Yorker’s might just be the sweetest one yet.

The poignant cartoon, featuring Rickman’s rivals, Harry Potter (as Snape) and John McClane (as Hans Gruber in Die Hard), really sums up the imprint Rickman made with his characters.

The cartoon, by Ben Schwartz, has been retweeted over 2,000 times, and shared on Facebook a massive 50,000 times.
