R.I.P. Gene Colan

Wallace Wood may not have ever even met Eugene Colan but this 1970 CAPTAIN AMERICA tale showed that the artists' unique styles paired up splendidly! Not quite awake yet so I could be wrong but I believe this was their only collaboration. Here are a couple of choice pages.


  1. I've always treasured this issue. I wish there had been more by the two of them... they created some rare, beautiful art on this story.


  2. I can't believe I've not seen this before! it's fascinating.

  3. An unusual airing of talent, and it's a shame they didn't work together more often.

    Panel three on page six always threw me, though - it looks like Fury has a multi-jointed right leg.
