R.I.P. Steve Dillon

Truly this year is seeing an absolute glut of creative people being taken from us.

Steven Dillon passed away on the 22nd of October at his home in New York.

Dillon gave comic fans so many amazing pieces of visual entertainment, starting on UK comics Hulk Weekly, before working on many titles such as Doctor Who Monthly (where he created Abslom Daak), to most fans though he was best known for his work on The Punisher, Hellblazer and the astounding Preacher. Along with artist Brett Ewins, he started the comic Deadline, which ran for 7 years.

His passing leaves an unfullable hole in comic art.

Rest in Peace, Mr Dillon.
