Solano Lopez - RIP


RIP - Francisco Solano Lopez ... one of Comicdom's true talents.

I grew up reading his work, in reprints of Valiant, Lion, etc., and in all the amazing War Picture Libraries he illustrated.
 He was a powerhouse of an artist, who had a studio that produced an epic amount of work. Everything he touched was indisputably his... his inked style leaping out at the reader with it's vibrant and vital linework.
He was most famous in the UK for Adam Eterno, and Janus Stark... both great strips!


There's a great piece on him at DOWNtheTUBES.net (home of all great Comics related reading!)
