Gene was a great artist and a fine man. He will ever remain an honored and revered giant of our industry. I had the privilege once of visiting his home and seeing some of the non-comics art and illustrations he created hanging here and there. Beautiful. Masterful. Breathtaking. Our little business is far poorer for his absence and the wide world has lost far more than it will ever know.
Please stop by again later today for another post. The Origin series will continue tomorrow.
