Remembering Gene Colan! 1968 MARVEL SUPERHEROES Original Cover Art! Medusa! Marvel!

The comics and illustration world has been rocked by the news that Gene Colan has passed away. Colan's amazingly moody and dramatic artwork has thrilled many a comics fan since the 60s ,when he came to full prominence on such Marvel titles as DAREDEVIL, CAPTAIN AMERICA, and, later, TOMB OF DRACULA, among numerous others. Gene also drew a great many attention-getting covers, such as the one seen below, for this issue of MARVEL SUPERHEROES # 15, from 1968! Note Gene's mastery of the human form in action, his sense of shading, and his ability to lead a viewer's eye across a scene! Click to enlarge!

I loved Gene. He was one of my very favorites since I was a kid. What a loss.
