The comics industry saw three major creators retire this week, and it’s worth noting their passing.
Legendary artist Jack Davis is officially putting down his pencil. At ninety years old, he says it’s time to go fishing. Considering his astounding body of work, and the personal inspiration he’s always been to me, he’s already caught the big one.
Creator of Tek Jansen and Alpha Squad Seven. Stephen Colbert, is also retiring this week. Though Tek Jansen wasn’t a top selling series for ONI Press, there was a lot to recommend it, and I doubt that Mr. Colbert will stay retired long.
Craig Ferguson, the actor who played Aquaman on CBS’s Late Late Show (shown above with Tim Gunn) has left the series for wetter pastures elsewhere. We wish him luck, and have our fingers crossed that he gets the nod should there ever be a big budget Aquaman movie.
