Comic book legend Steve Dillon has passed away


This is terribly sad news. One of my favourite comic book artists, Steve Dillon, has passed away much too young. He was only 54.

He was the artist who worked with Garth Ennis on Hellblazer from 1992 through 1994, and then on Preacher from 1995 through 2000. They also worked together on The Punisher.

steve-dillonDillon got his first professional work at the age of 16, drawing the title story in the first issue of Hulk Weekly for Marvel UK, later working on the Nick Fury strip. In the 1980s he also drew for Warrior and Doctor Who Magazine, where he created the character of Abslom Daak. He did a considerable amount of work for the comics 2000 AD and Warrior.

Along with Brett Ewins, Dillon started the comic magazine Deadline in 1988, which continued for another seven years.

Dillon’s younger brother, cartoonist Glyn Dillon, announced on social media on October 22, 2016 that Dillon had died in New York City. No further details were given.

He was a legend. He will be missed.

Thanks to Mike and Rich for sharing the news.
