Gene Colan. One of the greats. I could have done our 13 COVERS salute with any number of titles or characters he worked on, like Namor or Dracula, but with Daredevil so popular right now, it only made sense to shine a light on one of the most important artists in the Man Without Fear‘s history.
Colan died in 2011 but his art lives on.
