Do we know what he died of, yet? Whatever it was, it seemed to have struck suddenly. He was tweeting away happily till about a fortnight ago, never mentioned any illness, then just fell silent and now he's dead. 54 is no age, so he wasn't in natural decline.

R.I.P.

I wonder that too.... though at his age being a comic book artist is unhealthy if one doesn't exercise.

He was also the artist for Preacher

Always sad to hear when someone who is such a huge contributor to this art form.

Comics (graphic story telling) engages both sides of your brain. The words and reading engage your left brain while the imagery and art engage the right; it is one of the few mediums to do this.

Our right brains have lost valuable stimuli.

And a lot of the early Garth Ennis Punisher run. He and Ennis did a lot together.

This sucks.

I think they two of them also worked on Hellblazer, if I'm not mistaken.

This is indeed a deep loss to that industry.

It would be great if this thread included a bunch of his artwork. I've always like Judge Dredd.

I just read it on the News and am saddened, he was only in his fifties and this is the loss of a very great artistic talent, some of his work was beyond good and could only be called visionary art.

He was an artist famous for his work on the 2000AD character Judge Dredd but also worked on other art and has been working as a comic book artist since he was 16 years of age so was a naturally talented artist as well and of course one of the old school real artist's not the cut and paste digital guy's of today.

Like many such artist's sadly his work's all of which were original and irreplaceable were badly treated by the comic book industry including those behind 2000AD and there are story's of them being used to dry the floor of the office when people came in out of the rain, some of those artwork's never even got to see the light of day and like the other artist's in the industry he too may have felt abused by the publishers whom did not value the artwork's these artists produced.

A great talent and one that will not be easily replaced.

At a quick glance, that might be hard to source without scanning a page directly; Garth Ennis' work was...lets say, a bit blue.
Here's a good example from screenrant and an old favorite of mine.

Looks like he saw the future of USA where the people rise up against the Law.
Notice in the big picture one peasant shouting 'Kissinger Blockers Attack'. In other words, he saw the people rising up against Henry Kissinger.

Sad news indeed.
Was a truly talented artist.
Lost many teenage hours absorbed in his artwork.

Maybe he was too close to the truth concerning Russia's SATAN 2 missiles. Looking at the following picture, he knew that big nukes would one day be used.

On top of that the initial Block Mania was caused by his spies putting a chemical into the water supply that eventually rained (chemtrails) down on Mega City 1.

The chemical that everybody drinks in the water is probably what creates so much Trump/Clinton violence and road-rage.

Good Lord, I vividly remember that set of Dredd panels. A (literal) blast from the past. Was that really SD? He must have been in his 20s at the time.

The thing that struck me then, and which I am reminded of now, was that the inhabitants of Dredd's 'universe' must be inherently warlike and unrecognisable to present-day humans, because if a force-field had been invented that could transport things to an Earth where war was unknown, then the first thing I would do (as a resident of the Dredd universe) would be to step into it!
