WebFind: A tribute to US comics artist Steve Lightle

Over on his In My Not So Humble Opinion blog, Ben Herman has posted a terrific tribute to US comic artist Steve Lightle, who died earlier this month.

Steve was perhaps best known for his work on DC Comics’ Legion of Super-Heroes and Doom Patrol titles, but he worked for Marvel Comics, too.

I was very sorry to hear that comic book artist Steve Lightle had passed away on January 8th. I have been a fan of his work for many years.
