New broke this morning. We've lost a legend. Steve Dillon, known for co-creating Preacher with Garth Ennis and his work on The Punisher, has passed away. News was confirmed when Dillon's brother reported it on Twitter.
Sad to confirm the death of Steve, my big brother and my hero. He passed away in the city he loved (NYC). He will be sorely missed. Cheers x— glyn dillon (@glyn_dillon) October 22, 2016
Dillon first started in comics at age 16, drawing for Marvel UK. His career included work at 2000 AD, DC Comics, and Marvel. Condolences to his family. He will be missed.
