Was very sad this morning to find out that comic legend Ernie Colón had passed away.
Colón was born in Puerto Rico in July 1931, but lived in the US until his passing on the 8th August 2019.
Colón started as a letter for Harvey Comics working on Richie Rich before working as an artist for the same Company.
Throughout his career, he worked for Dc Comics, Marvel Comics, Warren Publishing, Eclipse, Atlas Comics and Valiant, on characters like Amethyst, Dreadstar, Damage Control, Red Sonja, Magnus Robot Fighter and many others.
Tragically, Colón passed away, aged 88 after a year of fighting cancer, but his legacy of over 60 years working in the comics field, not to mention painting, sculpting and other works, has left an indelible mark on the industry.
Rest In Peace, Mr. Colón.
