Farewell Carlos Ezquerra

A sad day indeed

Advertisements

Carlos Ezquerra passed away today and it is a sad day indeed.  Whilst many have drawn Dredd it was Carlos’ work that was so instantly recognisable and held me captive from such a young age.  Carlos brought Dredd to life and so much of what we now know and love about Dredd and the Mega Cities was of his making.

Beyond Dredd there is his work on Strontium dog and others.  He really was one of the greatest comic book artists ever and his work has always meant such a lot to me and delights me every time I see it.

I remember going to a con a few years ago just to see him and was gutted when he couldn’t get there because of air traffic controllers somewhere or other and when I eventually got my hands on a piece of his work it was like all my Christmas’ rolled into one.

Below is one that I have shared before that really shows just how amazing an artist he was and by all accounts he was a pretty top bloke too.

RIP Carlos…
