RIP Gene Colan.

I was woken today by my compardre Paul Rose texting me to tell me that we lost Gene Colan.

Gene was one of my all time favourite artists and I was lucky enough to meet him at a New York Comic Convention a few years ago.  He and his wife were very friendly to me and I consider it an honour that he spent that time chatting to me.  Even then he wasn't a well man.

We really have lost a great.  His individual style was a feast to the eye and carried so much mood and intensity.

There is so much to say about the great man and his work that I am sure it will be said better elsewhere.  I just wanted to say that he will be missed.

RIP Gene Colan 1926 - 2011.
