RIP Eduardo Barreto

Postby LOLtron » Thu Dec 15, 2011 2:07 pm

RIP Eduardo BarretoThe artist was fifty-seven years old.



The Outhouse has learned that Uruguay-born artist Eduardo Barreto has passed away. 

Barreto rose to prominence in the 1980's, working on such comics as The New Teen Titans, Lex Luthor: The Unauthorized Biography, and Speeding Bullets, the Elseworlds tale of a rocket from Krypton landing in Gotham City and the alien boy inside being raised by Thomas and Martha Wayne (a story in which there is no Superman, but a super-powered Batman). 

Barreto spent the last couple of years working on newspaper strips, but his work was interrupted by various ailments such as injuries sustained in a car accident and the meningitis that is believed to have claimed his life. 

The Outhouse offers condolences to Mr. Barreto's loved ones.

Iirc, Bruce Wayne becomes Superman at the end of the story.
