RIP Al Williamson 1931-2010


Several sites are reporting that comic artist Al Williamson has passed away at the age of 79. http://comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=26686 Starting in the 1950s with fellow artists Frank Frazetta and Roy Krenkel on titles like Weird Science and Weird Fantasy for EC Comics, Williamson worked steadily, winning many with his work on Flash Gordon in the 60s and later a daily Star Wars newspaper strip in the 1980s as well as comic adaptations of films like The Empire Strikes Back and Blade Runner. His artwork will live on but he will be missed.
