Jim Aparo has put down his pencil


He was one of my top 5 favorite artists.

Rest easy, Jim. :frowning:

I didn’t see any mention of Aparo in your link.

Did he invent the SAT?

I posted this yesterday in another thread.

Enjoyed his work on Aquaman and Batman back in the day. I always thought he was an underappreciated artist. RIP

I checked the same link to see if the page had been changed. I guess I should have been clearer as to the notice’s location (on the right and down, under News Brief and Links) or used a more mainstream source.

And I see that now. Even so, I felt that Jim’s passing rated its own thread. No slight intended.

Aw, I grew up with his work. He was one of the greats. :frowning:

Not an issue. I just needed to type something in order to post the quote.

Some samples of his work for those who aren’t familiar with it.

And here’s a more complete obituary, including a couple more examples of his work.

One of the greats I recall from childhood. RIP.

Jack Kirby, Gene Colan, George Perez… any of these guys still with us?
