Double Dose of Comic Book Tragedy

     Hello everyone, hope all is well.  Just the other day, it was reported that Gary Friedrich, co-creator of the motorcycle riding, "Ghost Rider" and Sgt. Fury scribe, passed away.  I met with Gary not too long ago and was all set to due an interview with him for this blog, but alas, this is not to be.

     Then just hours later, it was reported that long time Marvel staffer, colorist, inker and Hulk and Dr. Strange artist, Marie Severin passed away while in a nursing home after some recent health problems.  Marie started in the business back in the 50s as a colorist for the famed EC comics while her brother, artist supreme, John Severin, was an artist there.  Both eventually moved over to Marvel for long durations.

     For any of the old time great writers and artists to pass on, leaving the world a little worse for wear creatively is one thing, but two within hours?  This is something that seems believable only in the pages of a comic book!

     Take care and adopt a (Ghost Rider or Hulk) comic book today!
