It is our sad duty to report the passing of award-winning comic-book artist Gene Colan, who died yesterday after losing his battle with liver disease. He was 84.

Colan enjoyed an incredible 65-year long career in comic book illustration, working for both Marvel and DC. He is best known for his celebrated runs on Daredevil, Howard The Duck, and of course, The Tomb Of Dracula. His most recent work was in 2009, illustrating Captain America #601 for Marvel.

Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.

Gene Colan was without doubt one of the geniuses of the comic book artists world! I have always loved his work on all the classic Marvel titles he brought to vivid life in his own inimatable style; it was so individual and dynamic, I wish he'd done more work in modern comics and recent years. His legacy will always be with us, he was a true legend up there with Kirby and Ditko, and he will be greatly missed.
