It's been announced that artist Paul Ryan has died, aged only 66.

Amongst many other titles, he was perhaps most noted for his runs on The Avengers, The Fanstastic Four and The Phantom newspaper strip.

An artist with clean, lines and attention to detail for the ordinary things in life, he was the artist of some of my favourite comics ever, especially his work with Mark Gruenwald; the later issues of Squadron Supreme (That I don't think [personal profile] sagrada has reached in their posting yet) and then a little later on, his seminal work on the best (IMHO) New Universe title,

DP7 000

The DP7 (Click to read my post on the first issue)

And then, a little while after that, the grim and gritty 1990's defying adventures of the Cosmic Avenger;

no title

Quasar (Click to read my post on the first TWO issues)

His run on the Fantastic Four included the period of Sue Storm wearing a costume which was almost as not visible as she herself, but I won't hold that against him.

RIP Mr Ryan and thank you for all the enjoyment, on behalf of your many fans and all of scans_daily, I offer our condolences to his family and friends.

Dammit, now I feel kinda bad about making fun of his name last election cycle. RIP, Mr. Ryan.

(And in terms of sheer silliness, I have to say I kinda liked Sue's '90s costume. Somehow it just has more charm to it than a lot of other makeovers during the same period, like biker!Wonder Woman or mullet!Superman.)

That's a damned shame. I've been enjoying his work on the daily "Phantom" strip.

Damn. I really enjoyed his work on Avengers, Quasar, and DP7. (Also his Superman & Flash runs.)
