Stan Goldberg, a comic book artist known primarily for his work with Archie Comics and Marvel, passed away over the weekend.

After his time with Marvel, Goldberg became one of Archie Comics' primary artists.

Other comics Goldberg drew includes Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew and several recent comic adaptations of Nancy Drew books.
