Gene Colan RIP

Just read that comic book legend, Gene Colan has passed away at the age of 84. Although I never met Mr. Colan, I credit him with fueling my passion for comic books as well as my desire to one day become a comic book creator myself. Reading Gene Colan's work on titles like Captain America and Daredevil during the late 60s and 70s brought me such pleasure as a child that instantly I knew that I would create my own comic books one day and try to pass along the same pleasure that I got as a child, to those who would read my books one day. In honor of Mr. Colan, I'm about to take some of my old issues of Daredevil out of the protective plastics and sit back with a cold soda and a bag of chips and enjoy myself. Gone but not forgotten, your works will live on, to be enjoyed for years to come. Thank you Gene. My condolences go to Gene's family and friends. -
