R.I.P. Ric Estrada 1928-2009

In some sad news, Marc Evanier is reporting in his blog that artist Ric Estrada died on Friday of cancer. He was 81 years old.

My own exposure to Estrada's work was on the Legion of Super-Heroes title among other places. Estrada was the artist on the first 11 issues (out of 15) of the Karate Kid title, in addition to drawing several Legion comics - Superboy and the Legion #232 (the Klordny/Immune story), #234 (the Bounty and the Composite Legionnaire story), and Legion v2 #261 (the Space Circus of Death story). I believe he also worked on the Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld series as well way back when, but could be mistaken on this.

Another man with a part in the legacy of the Legion of Super-Heroes comics.

Rest in Peace, Ric Estrada (1928-2009).
