One of the last of the great EC Comics artists, John Severin, has died at the age of 90. Severin, who was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame in 2003, began working in comics in the late 1940s when he shared a studio with Harvey Kurtzman and Will Elder. Severin, who had a special talent for both military and western subjects, drew Two-Fisted Tales and Frontline Combat for EC, and was also one of the founding five original artists who launched Mad Magazine in 1952. Severin and his sister Marie, a talented artist and colorist in her own right with numerous credits at EC and Marvel, formed one of comics’ very few brother/sister duos.
