This may not mean much in the US, but Carlos Ezquerra, one of the most well known artists to have worked for the UK SF anthology comic "2000AD", has died:

Ezquerra is probably most famous for his work on "Judge Dredd" (having helped co-create the character with John Wagner) but his highly distinctive, tyre-tread outline style was also seen in "Strontium Dog" and a great many other works in collaboration with other well known comic book creators. Theres a lot to choose from, but my pick for his definitive work would be "The Apocalypse War", which can be found in "Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files Volume 5".

I grew up reading 2000AD from the age of 8 and now at nearly age 49 I'm still  subscribing and reading it, along with the Judge Dredd Megazine.

I love Ezquerra's work on Strontium Dog, Judge Dredd and the Stainless Steel Rat adaptations, as well as more recently Cursed Earth Coburn.

The man was a huge talent and had a enormous impact on the British comics scene since the 70s. He will be sorely missed.
