George Tuska, RIP
Tony Isabella just informed me (through Facebook) that comics artist George Tuska has passed away. If you've been following the "original comic art" posts I do, you've probably figured out that I was a great admirer of Tuska's work. I've long wished that he could've been getting as much comics work these days as he'd like (I feel the same way about pretty much anyone who's still around that worked in comics in the 1960s and 1970s). His style was unique, almost a blend of Kirby dynamism with the beauty of John Buscema.
He will be missed.
You could use a cash advance to help pay for original work from your favorite comic book artists like George Tuska or Steve Ditko.
