Dave Stevens: 1955-2008

Rocketeer #1 Cover

Dave Stevens has died of leukemia. Remembrances all over the comics blogosphere this morning. Here are a few: THE BEAT, Mark Evanier, Rob Ullman, Drawn!.

I remember seeing The Rocketeer graphic novel in the mid-1980s and being astounded with the intricacy and delicacy of the design and artwork. Dave was a consummate artist and he, and his work, will be missed.

THE BEAT has a follow up indicating that there’s a book coming out this fall about Stevens and his work.

Another post from a blogger I read: Larry Marder.

And another thoughtful post from Rob Ullman.
