Gene Colan 1926-2011
Clifford Meth shares the details.
Gene Colan was one of my favorite artists in my early teen years, when I was first discovering comics.
The first full run of a comic book series that I read was Daredevil (lent to me by Kurt Busiek in middle school), including many issues drawn by Gene.
The first drawing I made of an established comic book character may well have been based on images he created for that series.
Gene Colan’s work was unique, personal, and always a joy to look at. May he rest in peace.
