RIP Steve.

 

I wanted to meet him at London Comic Con back in February, but his line was crazy for both days, as he very generously insisted on sketching for everybody who wanted one. I decided against queuing for him as I was pushed for time, and so never met him. I really regret that now.

That's absolutely terrible - was lucky enough to see him at NYCC, but had no clue this would be the last time. RIP.

I just started reading Preacher last night, and admired Dillon's efforts.

 

Now this.

 

Very sad news indeed...

I first saw his artwork in the mid-80s in a 2000 A.D. Judge Dredd story. Something with a werewolf, I think. Even back then his art had something unique about it.

 

RIP

So sad.

 

I've really been enjoying the current Punisher book. Ultraviolence at its best, as always from Steve.

 

We'll miss you Steve.

Celebrated Preacher and Hellblazer artist Steve Dillon has died.

 

Met him a few times - a very nice bloke. I'm gutted. :(

He`s one of the few artists I`ve ever met, and I totally agree--a very nice guy.

 

Loved his work on Hellblazer and Preacher.

 

This news came out of nowhere. Very sad. RIP. :(

We had the privilege of having Steve do a signing at our shop on FCBD this year.

 

He was utterly charming and a consumate professional on the day and seemed genuinely humbled by the enthusiasm and appreciation showed by the fans that were in attendance.

 

A great artist and lovely man.

 

So sad to hear this news.

 

RIP sir.

Horrible news.

Reading Preacher back in the day was an overwhelmingly joyfull experience. A true testimony to Dillons genious.

Thoughts and prayer to his family

RIP

Very sad news.

 

First encoutered his art as a 10 year old in 2000AD probably around 1982 - in Mean Arena - then Judge Dredd - then Rogue Trooper

 

Warrior & Miracleman fans: Steve was the cover artist for Warrior no.1 - he also contributed the first published image of Warpsmith & Big Ben on the rear cover of Warrior no.3

 

Also drew part of "The Yesterday Gambit" which included the future version of KM

 

From Warrior 1
