Legendary comic book artist Steve Dillon has died.
Writer Warren Ellis confirmed the news via Twitter. There was no immediate word on cause of death.
I have it confirmed that Steve Dillon has died. He was a giant, and will be much missed.— Warren Ellis (@warrenellis) October 22, 2016
Dillon was the co-creator and artist of "Preacher," and the artist on "Punisher," "Judge Dredd" and many other comic book series. He was also the co-founder and editor of Deadline magazine.
Dillion's online biography indicates he was born in 1962, but does not give a month, so his age at time of death has not been confirmed at this time.
