Mike Esposito dead at 83

Mike Esposito, a comic book artist best known for his exceptional collaborations with fellow artist on "The Amazing Spider-Man" for Marvel Comics and "Wonder Woman" for DC Comics, died Sunday, October 24 at the age of 83.

Esposito was a prolific inker whose career in comics spanned close to four decades. He enhanced the pencils of just about every major artist you'd care mention during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, but it was his career-long pairing with Ross Andru that was the most fruitful for both artists. It is one of artdom's legendary pairings, and a case of two styles meshing perfectly to create a spectacular result.

  1. 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/
