From the family…

Hall of Fame artist John Severin, one of the last of the legendary EC artists, has died at age 90. Severin—whose sister Marie was also a famed artist and colorist for Marvel—was among the greatest draftsmen of the EC crew. He was especially well known for his Western comics, which were meticulously researched and elegant in their line. [,,,more at The Beat]

Never had the opportunity and privilege to meet John Severin. I had started a portrait of him some days ago to fill a missing Wikipedia biography image. But with the news, that page has been polished in the last while and a relatively recent photo has been uploaded. Heartfelt condolences to the grieving family. John is a giant among his peers.
