Farewell to Al Williamson: 1931-2010

Farewell to Al Williamson: 1931-2010

The comic book community has lost another great. Al Williamson has passed away at the age of 79.

With a career that spanned four decades and who helped break other legends such as Mike Kaluta and Bernie Wrightson break into the industry, and who influenced the likes of Frank Cho and Dave Gibbons, we truly have lost one of the best.

He was the recipient of two Eisners for Best Inker in 1996 and 1997, as well as was a Hall of Fame Eisner in 2000.

From his comic strip Secret Agent X-9, to his Star Wars adaptations, and his legendary work on Flash Gordon, his legacy lives on.
