News, Top Story

Following medical complications that began in April 2011, legendary comics artist Gene Colan passed away. Here is the announcement from his good friend Clifford Meth:

I regret to announce that my friend Gene Colan died at about 11 pm on June 23. Gene spent this last week in a quasi-coma state following a broken hip and complications from liver disease. He was 84.

I am terribly saddened to lose Gene. He was a gentle and deeply spiritual man, a bright light in every context, and those who knew him at any level were enriched by his warmth and generous nature.

On behalf of Comics Nexus staffers, our thoughts and prayers go out to Gene’s family and friends at this difficult time. Rest in peace Gene.
