I’m saddened to report that veteran cartoonist and colorist Stan Goldberg has passed away. Mark Evanier has the news, here. As I reported on August 20, Mr. Goldberg suffered a stroke about two weeks back and had entered hospice care.

I met Stan only once, on the dais at the San Diego Comic-Con a couple of years back. He was a charming, affable man with deep, sweet memories of working in the comic book biz. His work is important to the history of comics, and graced many, many comic books, particularly at Archie and Marvel. I am sorry to learn of his passing, and extend my condolences to his loved ones.

RIP, Stan Goldberg, comics artist. If in my mind I see the world in Marvel Comics colors, what I see is because of him.
