Horrible news: Preacher, Punisher, and Judge Dredd* artist Steve Dillon has died. I always loved his art -- he had a way of drawing the reader right into the scene and keeping emotions at the forefront. I'm so sorry to hear that he's passed.

*among many other things, of course.

Oh, no! He was actively drawing Punisher again for Marvel, too!

Really shocked by this news. At least he got to see Preacher as a TV show, after being in development forever.

Man, this one sucks. He  had one of the most expressive styles of all time. I always felt he was a bit underrated. A great for sure.

Sad news he was far too young.

He actually used to drink in my local pub,where he was known as new bloke.

The bizarre thing is even though I am a fan I've probably stood next to him at the bar a 100 times and never realised who it was,in fact only just found out.

Only 54, far too young.  Very talented and underrated.  I loved the facial expressions he gave the characters he drew.

I often bought comics simply because he was the artist.  He was great with dark humor, like Punisher MAX; but, could do any genre considering all of his British comics work and that for DC and Marvel.

Such a loss at such at early age.

54 years old. Such a waste. So sad.
