Al Williamson dead at 79

Illustrator Al Williamson passed away on June 13 after a long illness. He was one of my favorite illustrators on both the "Star Wars" and "Flash Gordon" strips, and I likewise loved his artwork on the "Agent X-9" comics.

Williamson's last published work was as the inker on Marvel Comics' woefully underappreciated "Spider-Girl" comic book series. (Speaking of which, a Williamson Spider-Girl illo and several other of his drawings make up this week's installment of "Picture Perfect Wednesday" at Shades of Gray. Click here to check them out.
