RIP Ernie Colón

Another great guy who worked in Comic Books passed away last week. I never gave his heritage any thought because he went by the Anglo version of Ernesto, ergo, he was an American like Jack “The King” Kirby (Jewish) or Carmine Infantino (Italian). It didn’t matter, I recognized his signature most frequently in Marvel Comics and the toy or Fantasy tie-ins he then did at DC in the Eighties. Ernie deserved more fame than he received though.

Thanks for all the great comic book memories dude! May many more people of all backgrounds and ethnicities follow in your footsteps, gender too. Comic Books are for everyone to enjoy!
