Gene Colan 1926-2011

The world has lost a tremendous artist today. Gene Colan died at about 11 pm on June 23, he spent this last week in a quasi-coma state after a broken hip and complications from liver disease. Besides his amazing work on legendary titles such as Daredevil and The Tomb of Dracula Gene Colan was credited with co-creating the Falcon, the first African-American superhero in mainstream comics. Colan was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2005. He was 84 when he passed. RIP to a legendary talent.
