Ernie Chan R.I.P.
Filipino artist extraordinaire, Ernie Chan (real name: Ernie Chua) has passed away at age 71. He made great contributions to the Marvel and DC universes (BATMAN, THE HULK, etc.) but is best remembered here at VC for his monumental CONAN and KULL work (often along side the great John Buscema), especially in SAVAGE SWORD and the newspaper strips. http://www.erniechan.com/
Fellow Filipino artist Tony DeZuniga also passed a week ago at age 79. DeZuniga is best known as co-creator of JONAH HEX. Both artists were part of a wave of awesome talent pool that hailed from the Philippines in the 70's.
