Jose "Pepe" Gonzalez

Just a quick mention that one of my favorite comic artists of all-time passed away last month - Jose Gonzalez (aka "Pepe").

I was in awe of his technique on Vampirella, and frequently tried to crib the "Spanish style" of design at which he and fellow Spanish artist Esteban Maroto so excelled.

He is also responsible for one of my all-time favorite (6-foot) posters.

This site has a great obit, and lots of even greater artwork.
