RIP Gonzalo Mayo

Post by sonicdan »

I saw on fb this morning that Kevin VanHook shared the news of Gonzalo Mayo's passing. Mayo was well known for his work on Vampirella and also inked a lot of classic Valiant comics. He has a very distinctive style that was instantly recognizable. Many that worked with him have shared what a pleasure it was to work with him. Rest in Peace, Gonzalo Mayo!

Dang, RIP

His distinctive inking is all over many Valiant classics, and he illustrated one of the all time great covers, Magnus 12

Rest in peace.

We're all getting older. If there's something you always wanted to do in life, start today.
