Noted Preacher, Punisher, and Hellblazer artist, Steve Dillon, has passed away.

I first heard about it on Twitter as long-time collaborator, Warren Ellis, "confirmed" Dillon's passing:

 From CBR:

Born in 1962 in Luton, Bedfordshire, England, Dillon made his professional debut at age 16 in the Marvel UK anthology "Hulk Weekly," and went on to draw the Nick Fury strip. He later worked on "Doctor Who Magazine," where he created the character Abslom Daak, and the "Warrior" anthology, and contributed regularly throughout the 1980s to 2000AD, illustrating such strips as "Judge Dredd," "Rogue Trooper" and "Bad Company." With the late artist Brett Ewins, Dillon also launched the magazine "Deadline."

Details as to the manner of his passing are not yet available, nor are any real confirmations of his age.

Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.

RIP Steve Dillon, you will be missed
