Sad to hear of the passing of artistic genius Tom Palmer. Possibly the biggest complement I can pay him us I rank him alongside Klaus Janson as an inker who has positive impact on the work of anyone he inked. He makes absolutely apparent that inking is so much more than just 'tracing'.

One if the true greats has gone, but has of legacy matched by few others.

More sad news from the Comic Book Industry as Tom Palmer was an outstanding inker of pencils. Very unfortunate to hear of his passing.

Oliver "Oli" Frey, best known as the cover artist for Crash & Zzap 64 magazine, has died aged 74. One of those artists you'd swear must've been a regular in 2000AD at some point, but his only contribution was a single Rogue Trooper splash page (or Rogue Tropper as this website has it). He did do a couple of episodes of Dan Dare for the eighties Eagle, however.

Never knew about his side career in erotic gay art, or the fact he worked on the 1978 Superman film!

M.I.K.:

He also did those back covers of Scream! that connected up into posters.

IAMTHESYSTEM:
Oliver Frey's distinctive style graced many Magazine covers. I used to buy the old Crash: ZX Spectrum, and I think Oliver produced comic book interiors for that publication. More terrible news then, and this year is proving a nemesis for many of my favourite artists and creators. None of us is getting any younger, of course.
