LUIS BERMEJO ROJO PASSES AWAY...
As sadly reported on other sites, Spanish artist LUIS
BERMEJO ROJO died at the age of 84 on December 12th.
You'll read far more detailed tributes of the man and his career
elsewhere, but I couldn't let his passing go unmentioned. For me,
the comic strip I most associate with him is The MISSING LINK/
JOHNNY FUTURE series from the late-'60s weekly periodical
FANTASTIC, and one consolation is that we'll still have the
man's art to enjoy, even if he himself is no longer around.
When it comes to art, "Luis is big! Luis is strong!"
If you're not familiar with his name or his work, your time
will be richly rewarded in doing a little research. Treasure
beyond measure awaits your discovery of it.
