RIP Mike Esposito

On the very day I posted a feature on AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #153, the first Spider-Man comic I ever read, I find out from Mark Evanier's blog that its inker and frequent Ross Andru collaborator, Mike Esposito, has died.

Inkers are unsung heroes in this business, and it's with great regret that I forgot to credit Mike in my post. Inkers can make or break a picture, and in the case of Ross Andru, Mike Esposito made it, every time.

Rest in peace, Mike. Thanks for everything.

It’s a tragedy that Mike Esposito passed away. He was the real legend. I believe that all characters he created will help to keep the memory of him and his talent. There so many people whose child’s memory are connected with the Wonder Woman or Metal Man. For those who would like to contribute to Mike’s memorial site, please be welcome to come to http://mikeesposito.people2remember.com/
