Ernie Chan 2010Comic book legend Ernie Chan (who had previously gone by the name Ernie Chua) has passed away.

Greg Hatcher at Comic Book Resources has a very good piece about him.

Here's a nice, though brief, interview with Ernie from a while ago.

I met Ernie in a "hello, pleased to meet you" kind of way at Comic Con International in 2010 (that's where this photo comes from). He seemed like a very nice guy and the art on his table was just tremendous.

He had a tremendous following because of his Conan work at Marvel, but when I was a kid he was one of the great Batman artists. I loved his dynamic covers as much as I loved his interiors.
