That's terrible news. I met him last year at NYCC and he was such a sweet guy.

Let's also not forget his magnificant runs on Daredevil and Tomb of Dracula.

That's a drag. Even at his age Gene still really has a passion for comic book art and it's sad to see him in this condition. Gene's a legend in my mind. He added an amazing depth to his action scenes that were just as great as Kirby at his best.

This September, Marvel is releasing the Gene Colan Tribute book, featuring reprints of some of Genes best work on Daredevil, Howard The Duck, Dracula, and of course, Iron Man.

It retails for $9.99 and proceeds go to Gene Colan to help with is medical bills.

Please help support one of the Greats.
