    R.I.P. Russ Heath


    "The family of Russ Heath has confirmed the comic book legend passed away Thursday evening at the age of 91 in Long Beach, California, after battling cancer.

    Born in 1927, Heath broke into comic books working on Western stories for Timely Comics (now Marvel Entertainment), including Two-Gun Kid.

    Moving on to horror and war stories, Heath worked for EC Comics for a time before co-creating the Haunted Tank at DC Comics and drawing the first appearance of the Losers."

    91 is a good run. His DC war stuff was great, I loved The Haunted Tank! He also did some cool work for Weird War Tales and Frontline Combat.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!
